I am aware Allan McGregor well. He’s a fantastic lad but he has developed a habit of picking up people that are shoulder-charging and the ball. He enjoys to leave a bit onto you. It is the first time that I have seen him do that with his foot. I presume they’ve predicted it properly.

Somewhere else on the field it’s a direct red card. An opponent is being endangered by it. He has already got the ball into his hands and he has gone with a leg. Le Ferguson is really just a blessed boy. He could have done worse injury.
