Jim Goodwin charged by Scottish FA for Ryan Porteous ‘cheat’ comments


Aberdeen manager Jim Goodwin faces disciplinary action after calling Hibernian centre-back Ryan Porteous a cheat.

Goodwin made his claims after Hibs were awarded a penalty in their 3-1 win over the Dons on Saturday, when Porteous was judged to have been fouled in the box.

The Aberdeen manager was adamant that referee David Dickinson had been conned, and he exchanged words with Porteous at full-time. His post-match comments have drawn the attention of the Scottish FA compliance officer and he has now been summoned to a disciplinary hearing.

Goodwin has been charged with breaking rule 73, which covers offensive statements, and rule 77, which says all players and staff must act in the best interests of the game.

At full-time at Easter Road on Saturday, he said: “I don’t know how many times the boy Porteous can get away with that kind of stuff.

“We’re telling our players in midweek to be careful with him in the box, be careful with him at set-plays and don’t touch him as he will go over.

“I actually had a laugh and a joke with the referee prior to the game to make him aware of it. Unfortunately, just before half-time he was sucked in hook, line and sinker.

“We showed our players a number of instances when Porteous has won penalties like that in the past. People will say he’s good at it and he’s clever, but it’s blatant cheating as far as I’m concerned and it has cost my team points.

“I told Porteous to his face after the game what I thought of him. I don’t care what he reads in the paper on Sunday and Monday. He knows. He’s laughing about it. He celebrates winning penalty kicks like he’s scored a goal.”
