leitch to be fined for rant

Recommended Posts



ABERDEEN FC assistant boss Scott Leitch will be fined for being sent to the stand during their 1-0 defeat by Hearts.


Leitch also faces being hit by a two-match touchline ban from the SFA after being banished for speaking out of turn to fourth official John Beaton.


Aberdeen boss Mark McGhee felt the decision to send his sidekick off was harsh but he will still have to fork out a club fine.


Leitch was sent off just after referee Mike Tumilty had booked Aberdeen substitute Ryan Fraser.


Never realised the coaches would be fined like the players, was McGhee fined after he got sent to the stands at Utd?  ???

Not only does MM "stick up" for his players, it seems he also supports his coaching staff . . . . .


"Scott Leitch deserves to be sent off every week - except this week! It's the quietest I've heard him, the least animated I've seen him, and suddenly he's getting sent to the stand. "
