Celtic's Craig Gordon Went Out Of His Way To Make Amends For Horror Tackle

Celtic's Craig Gordon Went Out Of His Way To Make Amends For Horror Tackle

Alloa Athletic striker Greig Spence has revealed that Celtic goalkeeper Craig Gordon paid for the three months worth of work he missed out on when the Scotland international injured him in the Scottish League Cup

The incident happened in a Scottish League Cup tie in September 2016, when Gordon ran out from his box and kung-fu challenged Spence. Gordon did not receive any punishment for the tackle.

Well it appears as if Gordon's guilt got the better of him with Spence tweeting that the former Sunderland keeper more than made up for injuring the attacker

I was off work for three months after this challenge but Craig Gordon covered my wages I lost so I forgive him.

Here is the tackle that left Spence with the injury:

Of course it's easy to temper the feeling of goodwill towards Gordon when you watch the tackle, but at the end of the day, he was under no obligation to give Spence anything following the challenge.
