McCulloch Laughs Off Kayal Claims

Lee McCulloch claims he did not touch Beram Kayal in the challenge that the Celtic midfielder claimed was a purposeful attempt to injure him.

Kayal told an Israeli newspaper last week that he feels McCulloch set out to hurt him during an Old Firm game in December 2011, in a clash that resulted in him suffering an ankle injury that kept him out for four months. 

When asked about the comments, the Rangers captain said: ``When I saw them I laughed, because I didn't make any contact with him whatsoever. 

``There was a picture in the press - from that angle, if I had have caught him, I think his leg would have snapped. 

``But I've not even touched him. There is another picture where he has rolled his ankle himself.''
