Matt O’Riley reckons he was lucky to escape a broken leg after Everton’s Isaac Price’s eye-watering challenge in Sydney. The Celtic ace was snapped during the shootout defeat to the Toffees as Ange Postecoglou’s men signed off from their tour Down Under.

O’Riley was just relieved to avoid serious injury but he admitted he was stunned Price didn’t even get a yellow card for the horror lunge.

The Celt said: “I got lucky. I’m not even sure he got booked, I don’t think he did. It was on my knee. I got quite a big mark from it. “I had a word with the referee.

He was trying to explain it to me but I didn’t really understand. On another day I get my leg broken. I didn’t get a fright but at the same time when I watched it back I realised I got lucky.
