Strachan to probe Boruc Pole ban

Celtic manager Gordon Strachan will not make a snap judgement after Artur Boruc was banned from the Poland squad for allegedly breaking a curfew.

"First of all, what I'm going to do is just focus on the Falkirk game and we will try our best to do that because that's the priority," he said.

"When that is out of the way, I will look at the facts of said incident, not rumours, but facts.

"And I can only deal with the facts when I get the facts."

Boruc has been dropped from Poland's squad for next month's World Cup double-header.

Poland bosses have accused the 28-year-old of embarking on a drinking session with two team-mates after the 1-0 friendly defeat by Ukraine on Wednesday.

Boruc, Dariusz Dudka and Radoslav Majewski reportedly ignored orders to stay in the team hotel.

And team coach Leo Beenhakker has now banned the trio indefinitely.


Boruc and his two fellow players were said to have left the national team's hotel in Kiev to have a night out with Polish journalists.

Poland kick-off their qualification campaign for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa at home to Slovenia on 6 September and travel to San Marino four days later.
