Sunderland's Gordon reveals warning from Man Utd boss

Sunderland goalkeeper Craig Gordon has revealed how Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has threatened to have his wages docked should he not turn in a blinder for Scotland tomorrow night in France.

He told the Daily Record: "Sir Alex did actually have a word for me after the game at Old Trafford. He warned me if I didn't make saves like I did against his team when we play France he'll make sure I get fined.

"No pressure on me then, eh? Actually, it was a thrill to play at Old Trafford and it was terrific to look back on where I'd come from to where I was playing that day.

"I didn't want to think too much about the occasion before I got there and concentrated on trying to treat it like just another game.

"However, I walked out for my warm-up beforehand and the back of the stands were so high I could barely even see them. It must be like watching Subbuteo from up there.

"It's a long way from what I've been used to and the noise was so great I couldn't even hear players shouting 10 yards in front of me."
