Former Whistler Steve Conroy has branded Andrew Davies assault on Scott Brown as ‘one of the worst’ challenges he’s ever seen.
The former ref spoke about the incident as the SFA are about to wash their hands of the matter and leave Davies to serve an automatic two-match ban.
“If I was asked for my opinion, I would say, ‘yeah, it ranks up there’. It’s one of the worst I’d seen.” Conroy told the BBC.
“It was certainly a nasty challenge. He had no intention of going for the ball. That’s the definition of it, of a violent conduct, which is what he was sent off for.”
It was, intentional, it was with malice, it was an assault on a fellow professional and for the SFA not to take further action against the Ross County captain is doing the rest of the professionals that play under their umbrella a target for outrageous challenges going forward.
Brendan Rodgers registered his disbelief at the attempt to severely hurt his Celtic captain by Davies and expected to see the player come before a panel on top of his two-game ban.
At this very moment, the Daily Record reports that no more action will be taken.
