Former Celtic star Tony Watt was dropped for Saturday’s match between Charlton and QPR after a ‘training ground incident’, according to his manager Guy Luzon.
Watt was expected to start for The Addicks in their first match of the new season at home to one of the division’s favourites but the forward had to make-do with a place on the bench.
The former Hoops hit-man ended up making the difference, however, scoring one and setting up the other in a 2-0 win.
But Luzon revealed after the game that Scotland Under-21 striker’s absence from the starting line-up was nothing to do with his ability, admitting there had been a training ground issue.
He told London 24:
Tony changed the game, he shows so much quality.
It is between me and him, that is why he didn’t start the game.
Discipline, yeah. He accepts it because he doesn’t have any choice, it is the coach’s choice and he accepted it.
There is no doubt about his quality. He will be good this season.
He once seemed destined for the top and unquestionably has the talent to go all the way.
Lets hope he screws the nut soon; Gordon Strachan could be doing with him!
