Ivanauskas Insists Gordon Wasnt Well

Ivanauskas Insists Gordon Wasnt Well

Hearts manager Valdas Ivanauskas is claiming that Craig Gordon was suffering from a cold at Tannadice last weekend.

The Scottish International was dropped to the bench for Heart's 1-0 win over Dundee United, but when goalkeeper Steven Banks went down injured in the 2nd half - he was rather quick up on his feat and eager to come on as a substitute.

"He was not feeling so good this morning," said Ivanauskas.

"We have a big match against Hibs on Tuesday and it would have been a big risk for him to play."

Speculation is that Craig Gordon is facing a disciplinary hearing after his comments earlier in the week, when he repeated claims made by Steven Pressley last month that there is unrest in the home dressing room over the way Romanov is running the club.

Ivanauskas insisted on Friday that Craig Gordon would not be dropped ahead of any disciplinary hearing, but Romanov must have changed his mind and benched the talented goalie.
