Court Sanctions Costly For Dundee Midfielder Paul McGowan

Dundee midfielder Paul McGowan will miss both remaining clashes with champions-elect Celtic following his conviction for police assault yesterday.

McGowan escaped jail but was subjected to a 16-week restriction of liberty order.

Under that he will confined to his home in Airdrie between the hours of 7pm and 7am each night.

That means he will miss out when Celtic visit Dens Park next Wednesday night.

And the Premiership post-split fixtures handed him another blow when they revealed the Dark Blues’ trip to Celtic Park next month will be played on a Friday night.

That’s another game McGowan will be forced to watch from his living room.

Looking further ahead, it will also cause problems for the Dark Blues’ pre-season build-up.

Should Dundee head off for a training camp, like they did last year when they spent a week in Hungary, he would have to remain behind in Scotland. And if they were to qualify for the Europa League, he would miss those midweek fixtures at the beginning of July.

As things stand, each Saturday evening McGowan will face a dash to be home in time after games.

While McGowan’s problems with the fixture list are self-inflicted, 
several clubs around the country have been handed difficulties by the SPFL.

By the end of the campaign, Dundee United will have made three trips to Inverness — the team they’re trying to catch in the race for third.

And Aberdeen are unlikely to relish an extra trip to Dens Park, where they’ve exited the Scottish Cup and dropped points in the league.
