Celtic's Strachan relaxed over Pittodrie row

Gordon Strachan insists his status as an Aberdeen legend will not be affected by the controversial scenes which overshadowed Celtic's match at Pittodrie.

A dispute between a Dons steward and the away dugout resulted in Celtic manager Strachan being sent to the stands on Sunday by referee Charlie Richmond.

Strachan faces a potential six-match touchline ban, on top of a possible four-match suspension for a dismissal during Celtic's match against Hearts in April.

The Scottish Football Association have written to Strachan and Celtic for their side of the story after receiving Richmond and fourth official John Underhill's reports, but the Celtic boss claims both men will back up his version of events, and insists there will be no damage done to his relationship with Dons followers.

'I don't think that's ever going to happen, that the Aberdeen fans don't like me,'' Strachan told Radio Clyde.

'You have got to remember that Gordon had no banter with anybody. Gordon was looking at the game.''

The former Aberdeen player was defending his assistant after the home steward claimed Garry Pendrey made a rude gesture to home supporters.

Strachan hit out at people who abuse coaches and players and cannot accept any response.

'I think it will be a problem for anybody now,'' he said.

'I think the police find it hard to arrest people because everybody would start jumping up and shouting.

'It's easier to say to a coach, `You keep quiet'.

'I think people who sit round dug-outs like getting season tickets there for that banter - they only like it one way though.

'The fans have a responsibility if there are kids about. I find it very sad if there's a man using horrible abuse and then complaining to a policeman that I was smiling at them.

'That happened at a game recently. It's a mad, mad world.''

Strachan expects referee Richmond to support his case despite dismissing him at Pittodrie.

'After the game I just couldn't get my head round it,'' Strachan added.

'You have got to remember that there wasn't any banter towards me. It wasn't me, I can assure you, it wasn't me.

'It's an incredible situation where the referee has got sympathy with me after the game and every official has got sympathy and they said they would put that in their report.

'Gordon never said a dickie bird that will be backed up by anyone that was there.

'If anyone looks at it they would find it confusing. I really have to wait for the report and then reply to that.''
