Strachan open to limited use of video evidence

Celtic boss Gordon Strachan is only in favour of video evidence in limited circumstances. And this despite the contentious offside decision which cost The Hoops a goal during their Champions League draw with Aalborg.

Asked if there was a case for the technology to be introduced, Strachan replied:

"For goal-line decisions, whether the ball is over the line or not, that's about it.

"I am a big fan of rugby league and it doesn't take long to look at these things.

"People say it takes a long time but it doesn't.

"It took the referee two-and-a-half minutes to send someone off on Wednesday - and it was the wrong person.

"You could have used video evidence for that, that might have been handy.

"But only for goal-line things or whether something was in or out of the penalty box, not offside."
