Celtic manager Ronny Deila was not prepared to make excuses for his team dropping two points in their 1-1 draw at Hamilton. Cheap Dolphins Jerseys . In an incident-packed encounter at New Douglas Park Celtic defender Dedryck Boyata was dismissed by Craig Thomson, who could have issued a second red card to Darian MacKinnon of Hamilton for two reckless challenges in the second half.The Hoops were leading through a Leigh Griffiths penalty when Boyata was dismissed just before the break for a last-man tackle on Carlton Morris just outside the box, and although the defender appeared to take the ball first, Thomson swiftly produced a red card. I think it was an okay decision, Deila said of Thomsons judgement. Rule No 1, as a defender, is stay on your feet and run with people and it is something we have to learn from.I have seen it again one more time and I dont think he touched the ball and we have to learn from these situations.When you have one versus one, you have to run with people. We have to run with them instead of taking chances.Deila was equally frustrated Celtic failed to take good chances before Eamonn Brophy levelled the match on 73 minutes. Hamilton goalkeeper Michael McGovern saves a penalty from Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths Griffiths had a second penalty saved by Michael McGovern and the striker, along with Gary Mackay-Steven squandered chances with just the goalkeeper to beat.I was disappointed that we lost two points because we controlled the game quite well at 1-0, and then in the second half we produced three chances, should have scored two but we couldnt do it, Deila said.When you get two alone with the goalkeeper and a penalty and miss it, then it is going to be hard to win football games.At the end, the opponents will get a chance or two and it was a good finish from the set-play.Griffiths took his tally for the season to 33 but was left to regret the penalty miss, and is now looking ahead to the midweek clash with his former club Dundee.He said: I take responsibility. Ive scored the first one so I should be stepping up confident of scoring the second one. But Ive got to give credit to Michael, it was a great save and theyve kicked on from that to get a point.But thats twice hes saved a penalty from me so hopefully I dont have to face him again. Its annoying that we havent stretched our lead but weve got to accept that and take it forward.We just concentrate on what we do so our mind is only on Dundee on Wednesday now. Hamilton manager Martin Canning Hamilton player/manager Martin Canning felt pride had been restored after the recent 8-1 thrashing at Celtic Park, and even expressed some disappointment that his side could not force the win.Canning said: Everyone was hurting after the last game but we showed we can get over that and put on a performance.We knew it was a bad night for us. Every game has to be taken individually and that proved it. It feels like a win in a way as we would have taken a point before the game.But I said in the dressing room in a quiet moment it was disappointing we didnt win given the way the game went. It was a big opportunity to get the three points, which would have been the most important thing.But I was proud of the players and the effort they put in. Cheap Dan Marino Jersey . Patrice Bergeron and Daniel Paille scored 20 seconds apart a few minutes after Stamkos was taken off the ice on a stretcher with a broken right leg, and the Bruins beat the Lightning 3-0 on Monday afternoon. Wholesale Dolphins Jerseys . Barcelona also left injured defenders Carles Puyol, Javier Mascherano and Jordi Alba out of its squad for the trip to Glasgow. That means that Marc Bartra will probably start again in the centre of the defence alongside Gerard Pique. .com) - Christian Ponder will get another chance to prove himself for the Minnesota Vikings, with head coach Leslie Frazier announcing Wednesday that the struggling quarterback will start this weekends game against the Green Bay Packers. Essex 423 (Lawrence 154, ten Doeschate 86, Foster 54, Klein 4-107) beat Leicestershire 238 (Cosgrove 71, Robson 52, Porter 4-50) and 175 (Masters 4-39, Porter 4-49) by an innings and 10 runsScorecard Leicestershire lost their coach and their promotion hopes within a few hours with Andrew McDonald confirming a return to Australia with a year of his contract remaining and Essex inflicting their heaviest defeat of the season.McDonald, two years into a three-year deal, has accepted the Victoria coaching position, having already been named as the new Melbourne Renegades coach.McDonald held a meeting with Wasim Khan, the Leicestershire chief executive, on Thursday evening at which he explained the lure of the Victoria job and his familys desire to return to Australia. Leicestershire had seemed resigned to the news for a few days and did not attempt to contest McDonalds departure. Pierre de Bruyn, currently in charge of the seconds, steps into the head coach role, with Graeme Welch, the former Derbyshire coach, lined up as assistant.This decision has not been easy for Andrew and we are naturally disappointed to lose a person and coach of his calibre. We fully understand and respect the reasons for his decision, said Khan.Andrew has done a fantastic job here in his two years as Elite Performance Director, with the team making great strides forward. Performances and results have drastically improved and Andrew has left a strong platform to build on. We will now look to build on his excellent work.It is an understandable decision from McDonald. He represented Victoria and Melbourne Renegades as a player and might well be considered a viable candidate the next time the Australia coaching role becomes vacant.It has been an extremely difficult decision to leave Leicestershire County Cricket Club but I have to put my family first and we are now going to settle back home in Australia.Id like to thank the club for this fantastic opportunity, Ill always be grateful for having the chance to both play and coach at the Fischer County Ground, and will continue to follow the clubs fortunes from afar.I also appreciate the fact that Leicestershire have allowed me the opportunity to return home and wish the club every success for the future.It will sting McDonald to depart in such circumstances. After a season of improvement in Championship cricket, Leicestershire succumbed to defeat by an innings and 10 runs on the third day against Essex. Having had Essex reeling at 68 for 5 in their first innings, it was a remarkable turnaround.They may reflect, though, that they lost the match as much in their own first innings, with a total of 238 probably around 100 below par; the absence of a spinner may also have cost them in Essexs innings. Leicestershires spinners have contributed fewer than 100 overs in the Championship all season.They also fell, in part at least, victim to their own tactics here. Having opted to play this game on a used surface in thhe knowledge that there would be some uneven bounce as the game progressed, they struggled to deal with the probing length of Jamie Porter and David Masters once the pitch started to deteriorate. Cheap Dolphins Jerseys Authentic. .Both men made a few deliveries spit off a length, rapping batsmen on the gloves and body. After Paul Horton and Angus Robson were drawn into feeling for balls outside off, Mark Cosgrove missed a straight one as he shuffled across and tried to work it into the leg side and Mark Pettini edged a brute of a ball that climbed and took his outside edge.Ned Eckersley clipped one off his hip to Kishen Velani, the substitute on to allow Alastair Cook to attend the England meeting about the Bangladesh tour, at square leg. A terrible mix-up between Ben Raine and Richard Jones, with both men stranded in mid-pitch looking unimpressed with one another, summed up a disappointing day for Leicestershire. They are now 44 points behind Essex with three matches to play.The fact that they made it towards the end of August with promotion hopes intact represents improvement, although how much progress has been made remains open to debate.Leicestershire were fifth in Group A of the Royal London Cup (with three wins) and eighth in the North Group of the NatWest Blast (with four wins) in 2014, the year before McDonald arrived. This year they were eighth in the Royal London Cup (with two wins) and ninth in the North Group of The Blast (with four wins). Their improvement in the Championship is welcome, but the lack of progress of home-grown players - a substantial part of the role of any club and a key justification for the level of funding they receive - is a major caveat.De Bruyn, the new coach, will inherit some good, experienced players and an improved culture of greater expectations. But there remains a lot of work ahead if Leicestershire are to deny the growing band of those who think of them, and several other counties, as a pesky irrelevance and hangover of a bygone age.Their supporters will, quite rightly, point to their role in the development of several fine players now with other counties. But if the 18-county system is to survive - and it would hard to exaggerate what peril it is in right now - it has to win over the doubters, too.Essex go into the final three games as promotion favourites but, with a final match against second-placed Kent, can take nothing for granted. They look to have a batting line-up that could serve them well in Division One, though the absence of a top-class spinner is one obvious weakness. The progress since Chris Silverwood took over as coach a year ago - initially on an interim basis - and Ryan ten Doeschate was given the Championship captaincy at the start of this season, is outstanding.August 26, 10.27am: This article was updated following confirmation of McDonalds departure Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
