Wighton dad feared worst after tackle.

Byline: EUAN MCARTHUR

CRAIG WIGHTON'S dad reckons his son was lucky to escape serious injury after Rangers defender Bruno Alves's scissor tackle.

The Dundee kid's father feared the worst for his boy who has only just returned from nine months out recovering from a knee op.

Dad Paul reckons Alves was fortunate to stay on the pitch and said: "You do fear the worst. My heart was in my mouth.

"I've watched it back and it could easily have been a red and worse for Craig. I know how hard he's worked to get fit. When you see a scissors tackle like that you're deeply concerned."
