Strachan admits Boruc concerns

Published Add your comment

Celtic manager Gordon Strachan admits Artur Boruc's form is no laughing matter after yet another flawed performance from the controversial Hoops goalkeeper in their Homecoming Scottish Cup fourth-round tie win over Dundee at Parkhead.

In the 14th minute of the cup tie against the Irn-Bru First Division side, Boruc gifted Dundee the opener when he took a wild swipe and missed David O'Brien's through ball allowing Colin McMenamin to put the visitors into a shock lead before Celtic hit back with a goal apiece from Scott Brown and Aiden McGeady.

Strachan will invite the Pole in to his office to discuss his form at training on Monday and said: "It's not something that we dismiss. We don't go away and laugh at the big swipe, we actually think about what's gone on."

He added: "It's up to us to find the best way to get Artur back to his best form. You analyse every game on the Monday and talk about to see where we could have done better.

"We will sit him down with the coaching staff and say, 'what is the best for you'.

"Every player has been left out. You cannot say he is never going to be left out. That's not today, it's next week, next month or next year. But he can be left out."
