So Gordon Strachan was obliged to give his opinion on the matter. On Tahar El-Khalej's straight red card for the tackle on Dyer Gordon said: "I have no defence for the tackle - and neither has he! I have not said anything to him but whatever I do say and whether I fine him will be private. I am not happy with it and and I would not be happy if it happened to one of my players. It was a definite sending-off and I have no problems with that."
