Dispute between Coach and Goalkeeper of Rangers FC

An intense dispute is going on between the coach of Rangers FC and Celtic’s goalkeeper Craig Gordon.

The 31 years old Scottish shot-stopper sustained a series of injuries during his time performing for Sunderland which kept him out of the playing grounds for a large period of time and his injuries became so serious that Gordon had to go through knee surgeries in order to repair the tendon and the anterior cruciate ligament that he was suffering from.

Sunderland eventually decided to release him and Gordon became a free agent. Rangers FC offered Gordon the chance to recover using their training facilities and rumors started to emerge stating that Gordon was eventually going to officially sign for Rangers when he was fully recovered but it never happened as he signed for Celtic FC.

Craig Gordon states that he was never offered a contract by Rangers FC and this is why he decided to make a move to Celtic but according to the coach Ally McCoist, Rangers did indeed offered Gordon a permanent contract with the club.

Ally McCoist said: “We did offer Craig a contract. There seems to have been a question mark placed over myself and my staff about putting an offer to a very good player.But I can assure you an offer was made to Craig and his representatives. I gave Craig the opportunity to use our facilities, our doctor, our physio, our goalkeeping coach and I haven’t heard anything from him since’’

Injuries was a consistent problem for Craig Gordon as he missed a large amount of matches for Sunderland and other clubs a few years ago and even had to go through surgeries but it seems like his days to worry about injuries are past him as the Scottish goalkeeper is a consistent performer for Celtic and has been making impressive performances for the club which has allowed him to make a return to the Scotland squad and represent his country at the international stage.
