Rules should be changed for these tackles. He wasn't going for the ball, it wasn't a goal scoring opportunity, it was malicious thuggery.
Posted similar in the ref watch thread. Should be classes as red card offences, no doubt.

The Cathcart attack on Jesus was nothing less than thuggery. A cynical trip to stop him, followed up by a whack to hurt him. Clear intent, violent conduct. An absolute shithouse's challenge that was more suited to a Sunday pub league. He should have been sent off.
Really VAR should be telling the ref to send him off. Surely that should be classed as violent conduct. 1) He totally intended it. 2) He injured Jesus... so how is that not violent?

With var you can see what it was. Zero attempt to get the ball just malicious thuggery. I hope that prick plays in the return fixture.
