Hopefully it doesn't cost Celtic.
Think the Premier League scrapped that rule soon after they fined Blackpool for it a couple of seasons ago
I can understand why Barca are doing this, heck if Celtic did the same thing I sure as hell woouldn't be complaining but it does feel like a bit of a kick in the teeth when you consider that we had to Defend for our life's against the likes of Messi, Xavi, Sanchez, Villa, Pedro & Iniesta to get 3 points
