I've offered to play for nothing and nobody's taken it up. I've changed agents a couple of times and, whether you're getting the right information back, I don't know.<p>"It could be that someone's put out a bad word about me. I think I've only had one breach of the peace charge in my life, so it's not exactly that bad. I don't know what it is. It is quite frustrating."<p>&nbsp;For breaking stories and all the great banter like us on Facebook: <a href=></a></p><a href=''>Read more on Tribal Football</a> Fri, 17 Jan 2014 04:08:54 +1100 <![CDATA[Dunfermline cop 15-point sanction for falling into administration ]]> <p>Dunfermline Athletic have been docked 15 points for entering interim administration.<p>A Scottish Football Association board meeting at Hampden Park on Tuesday made official the decision that Dunfermline would lose 15 points from their 2012/13 season total as well as being hit with a transfer embargo.<p>The Pars will now drop to second bottom on the First Division table, three points behind Cowdenbeath, who they are likely to meet in a relegation playoff with bottom-placed Airdrie United destined for the Second Division.<p>The Fife club will also be subject to a 10-point deduction and a 150,000 fine if they do not secure a Company Voluntary Agreement ahead of the 2013/14 campaign.<p>"The Scottish Football League regrets the current situation that Dunfermline Athletic FC finds itself in," read a statement.<p>"We are fully aware of the impact this situation has had on all concerned, especially players, staff and fans of the club.<p>"The SFL has a duty to protect the integrity and on-going smooth-running of the league and therefore following a thorough process, the SFL board has decided that Dunfermline Athletic Football Club Limited is guilty of conduct contrary to league rules, the interests of the league and its member clubs."<p>&nbsp;<a href= target=new>The game is about opinions.

Craig Levein did something similar when he went from Cowdenbeath to the Hearts job, so it's possible," free agent Gordon said.<p>"The success Paul has had at that level will have built his confidence. It was always going to be difficult going from playing to management - but he now knows he can do it.<p>"Paul seems to have settled into it very quickly and given the chance, he could probably do it at a higher level as well."<p>&nbsp;<a href= target=new>The game is about opinions.

They had an option to extend my contract and I was waiting all this time.<p>"But it became clear that because of financial cuts they would not take up the option on the same terms as I was on.<p>"They couldn't honour what we had agreed in my initial contract. I have to understand that because it's not me who knows what the club can afford or not.<p>"But I couldn't accept the proposal they made because it's so inferior to my wage last season.<p>"I'm very sad because of the season we had, with all the difficulties.<p>"I was coming to a new country, a new club but after a season in charge we know all the opponents' strengths and weaknesses and we know our own players.<p>"I thought we might have done even better next season - everything was in place for that.<p>"I wish everyone at Tynecastle all the best. I am a great supporter of Hearts now. It's my decision because they made me an offer but it wasn't acceptable."<p>It is believed that former Jambos midfielders Paul Hartley and Colin Cameron (managers of Alloa Athletic and Cowdenbeath respectively) and ex-Tynecastle caretaker and current Raith Rovers manager John McGlynn are all in the frame to replace Sergio.<p>&nbsp;<a href= target=new>The game is about opinions.
