Motherwell manager Mark McGhee claimed he didn’t know the name of Celtic’s assistant manager Chris Davies on Saturday afternoon – just a few hours after naming him in his personal match day programme notes.
McGhee was involved in a heated spat with Davies and several other members of Celtic’s coaching staff over where Hoops players warmed-up for the Scottish Premiership clash at Fir Park.
And as we told you at the time, following Celtic’s 4-3 victory, McGhee told the press in his post-match press conference that he didn’t know who Davies was, before labelling him not “Celtic class”.
Davies has hit back at McGhee’s comments today and now a photograph of Motherwell’s programme from the game seems to back-up Davies’ claims that McGhee knew exactly who he was:

So, there you have it; if there was any ambiguity remaining as to whether or not McGhee really didn’t know Davies’ name, it has now surely been blown out of the water.
Having seen McGhee’s programme notes, what do you make of the incident now?
