High performance manager Neil Craig was hit on the head with a plastic bottle, with some dispute over whether the bottle was thrown or blown by the heavy winds.

The goalkeeper hit back at the criticism he has received in the wake of another mistake in the Premier League.

"Everyone gets stick. That’s part of being an England player. You have to live with it, you’ve got to learn.
