Gaffer disappointed to lose his on-loan midfielder following off-the-ball incident at Bolton.
David Artell has told the club’s official website that Scott Robertson ‘has been a silly boy’ and will have to learn his lesson after being issued with a three-match ban following an off-the-ball incident against Bolton Wanderers on Friday night. Robertson was provoked into retaliation and Artell says that his actions have no place on a football pitch.
Robertson will now miss three matches, opening the door for another midfield player. The on-loan Celtic youngster will also be disciplined internally.
Artell revealed to the club’s official website: “I didn’t see the incident at the time but it was shown to me after the game and he has been a silly boy. You cannot do that sort of thing on the football pitch.
“I haven’t spoken to me yet but I will be doing. He will also be dealt with the club internally. He may be on loan but whilst he is with us, he has to adhere to our rules and although I never like taking money off them, you cannot do what Scott did and he will know that.
“I remember when Perry (Ng) did something with virtually the last kick at Cambridge and he managed to redeem himself when he came back so hopefully Scott will be the same.”
