Strachan left cold by poor showing

CELTIC boss Gordon Strachan was disappointed after watching his Scottish champs struggle to get past amateurs Queen's Park in yesterday's Scottish Cup clash.
After seeing his side book their place in the quarter-finals with a 2-1 over the Hampden men, he said: "It wasn't very good, it was disappointing.
"I expected us to be relaxed in the second half but it worked the other way, our concentration and technical ability went down.
"You hope you set standards over the years and the teams that have played here before have set standards.
"Players who have played here before would not have been proud of that performance and we are not proud of it.
"So I think most of the praise has to go to Queen's Park."
Strachan also moved to draw a line under the highly-publicised bust-up between keeper Artur Boruc and team-mate Aiden McGeady, adding: "I've spoken to the players and as far as I'm concerned it's finished."
Queen's Park goal grabber Adam Coakley, meanwhile, insisted that even his sending off - after less than 20 minutes on the park - couldn't dampen his joy at scoring at Parkhead.
The lifelong Hoops fan, who saw yellow for celebrating his goal and was then sent off for a second bookable offence, said: "It hasn't taken the shine off to be honest with you.
"It was worth getting the first booking, it was a dream come true to score.
"Obviously you need to get booked when you celebrate like that because it's in the rules but I think the referee should have maybe given me the benefit of the doubt for the second one.
"It was only my first tackle and there was no intent there.
"Gordon Strachan said it was never a sending-off and everybody on the Celtic side and our side disagreed with the referee.
"Some of the boys are a wee bit gutted we didn't get another goal. But to even be near getting a replay, is good."
