Strachan defends Man Utd winger Young: It was nailed on pen!

Former Manchester United winger Gordon Strachan insists Ashley Young was fouled for last night's penalty against Real Sociedad.

Young has been accused of diving this morning.

But Scotland coach Strachan says: "That's his own problem; he's created that (diving reputation).

"If you look at the Real Sociedad players, they accept it (the decision). He's grabbed him, whether you have to go down as quick as that.

"But the guy has given him an opportunity, he's dragged him back, you're not allowed to do that. It's a penalty as far as I'm concerned."
