Fatal error with Wordpress seo plugin

Fatal error: Call to undefined function wp_get_theme() in /home/saltydog/public_html/wp-content/plugins/wordpress-seo/admin/class-admin.php on line 517

After downloading this plugin I now get the above message and cannot access my WP admin area to remove the plugin.Please can anyone advise me how to get back into the dashboard. When I enter the site url the edit page etc. bar appears but as soon as I try to enter this a blank page with the fatal error message appears.
On my other website the plugin works fine. Iam using Matt Carters affiliates word press theme.

Thanks for any help,

Hi Frank,

That type of error is usually caused by a plugin that is not compatible with the theme you're using. I suggest you try going to your wp-content/plugins directory in your control panel/cPanel and delete the incompatible plugin.

Hope that helps. Have a good day!
