Video: Steve Clarke Hits Back at SFA For Spelling His Name Wrong When Charging Him

Steve Clarke has hit back at the SFA after they spelled his name wrong when charging him for comments he made about Gary Dicker’s failed red card appeal.

The Kilmarnock manager made a public statement at the end of last month criticising the SFA’s decision to reject their appeal of Dicker’s red card against Hearts.

Replays showed that Dicker was very unlucky to be sent off for the tackle on Calumn Morrison which Willie Collum deemed a straight red card.

So it was understandable that Killie appealed that decision. But that appeal was thrown out – leading Clarke to publicly share his unhappiness.

It was confirmed earlier this week that Clarke and Kilmarnock would face disciplinary action for his comments.

And while Clarke is disappointed by that, he appeared more annoyed by the SFA apparently spelling his name wrong in the charge.

Speaking today, Clarke said:

It’s been a tough month for the SFA so far due to a number of decisions that they have made.

They have been criticised for failing to retrospectively punish Allan McGregor for a kick out at Kristoffer Ajer in the Celtic v Rangers game, while Aberdeen today deemed their reasons for throwing out an appeal of Michael Devlin’s red card against Kilmarnock as ‘unacceptable’.
