Arbuckle Doesn't Blame Shimmin

Gary Arbuckle's manager might think Dominic Shimmin was responsible for his triple leg break but Arbuckle doesn't.

In today's Scottish Sun Arbuckle (pictured, left: playing for Morton as a trialist against Hartlepool in July 2008) told Ronnie MacKay that he doesn't blame Shimmin. He said: "But I don’t blame Dominic for the tackle — he is a hard player and it’s one of those things. It was a hard tackle. He came in from the side and I was quite close to the touchline. He was obviously trying to put the ball out but I never saw him coming as I was ready to run down the line. It was a strong challenge, unfortunately this is the result. It was very painful and I realised quickly I had probably broken it.”

The Queen Of The South striker also revealed that he has spoken to Dominic after Stevie Masterton - a former teammate at Clyde - gave the big defender his number to contact to him: “I spoke to Stevie Masterton, who is a pal of mine from when we were at Clyde, and he told me that Dominic was concerned. He passed my number on to him so he could speak to me."
