HIBERNIAN MIDFIELDER FRASER Fyvie played a major role in the sending off of Rangers’ Andy Halliday on Monday.

70 minutes into the Scottish Championship clash, which ended 4-2 to Rangers, Halliday appeared to kick out and barge his shoulder into Fyvie, who immediately grabbed hold of his face.

While Rangers are appealing the red card on 7 January, the Scottish FA has retrospectively dished out a two-match ban to Fyvie for simulation.

“In that at the above match you committed an act of simulation in that you feigned that you had received a blow to the face or head from Andrew Halliday of Rangers FC,” the disciplinary statement reads.

“That this act of simulation supported an error of judgement by the Match Referee that Andrew Halliday had head-butted you upon the face or head, and caused the Match Referee to make an incorrect decision to dismiss Andrew Halliday for the offence of violent conduct.”
