After Gordon’s comments relating to the recent furore surrounding the Scottish FA’s disciplinary procedures, a Twitter user posted a picture of the challenge, describing it as “bewildering” that the Hoops No.1 had not faced retrospective action for the challenge on Spence.

However, the 26-year-old responded saying: “I was off work for three months after this challenge but Craig Gordon covered the wages I lost so I forgive him.”

Gordon had suggested on Thursday that Scottish football’s governing body needed to ensure greater transparency in its disciplinary process.
