Gary Locke: Welcomed 'passion' shown by assistant

Gary Locke: Welcomed 'passion' shown by assistant

Brown and Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes were sent to the stands after a set-to which followed teenager Jordan McGhee's late winner in a 2-1 win.

Victory was all the sweeter for Locke given he disputed the award of a penalty which led to Aberdeen's goal.

And after the game he said: "The technical areas aren't exactly a million miles apart.

"You think you are a bit harshly done by and then you score a winning goal. Anybody that doesn't show a bit of passion, questions would be asked.

"I didn't think Billy did a lot wrong. His momentum took him into their technical area. I didn't think he could move that quickly.

"It's something out of nothing. We will go and have a beer with Derek now and it will be forgotten. The game was action-packed and I think we should be talking about how good a game it was with two teams who were desperate to get three points.

"There was a lot of quality on both sides and I think we should be talking about that rather than Basher Brown."

McInnes said: "I'm disappointed. I have never seen a member of staff come into the opposition's technical area to celebrate a goal the way he did.

"But as soon as I put my arms on him to try and push him back, I am guilty. I have apologised to the referee. I am disappointed in myself but I was surprised at the reaction."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
