Hibs’ midfielder Fraser Fyvie has been suspended for two matches following an incident with Rangers’ Andy Halliday during Monday’s defeat at Ibrox.

Halliday appeared to aim a kick at Fyvie before barging against his arm with his shoulder. Initially it looked as though the Rangers player had head-butted Fyvie who held his face and Halliday was sent off as a result. Television replays however showed that there had been no contact with his face.

The former Aberdeen player will miss two matches, coincidentally both against Raith Rovers – a Championship meeting at Easter Road on Saturday, then a Scottish Cup fourth-round meeting in Fife a week later.

The Scottish FA compliance officer said Fyvie’s actions caused referee Bobby Madden to make an error and offered the 22-year-old a two-game ban, which he opted not to contest.
