Eight-match ban for Saints boss Lomas

St Johnstone manager Steve Lomas has been handed an eight-match touchline ban, after being sent to the stand during St Johnstone's 1-1 draw against Celtic last month.

Lomas was also sent to the stand towards the end of his side's 1-0 defeat by Hibernian on Wednesday night, which will incur another punishment at a later date.

A statement on the Perth club's official website read: "The SFA have this afternoon handed Steve Lomas an eight-match touchline suspension following his dismissal from the dugout in the match against Celtic on 11th November for foul and abusive language towards a match official.

"This ban consists of six games for the offence committed at Celtic Park plus the suspended two-game ban which was already hanging over him following the game against Ross County in Dingwall in September.''

The Scottish Football Association confirmed Lomas had been punished for breaching rule 203, which incorporates "dissent, the adoption of an aggressive attitude towards a match official and the use of offensive, insulting and abusive language''.

Lomas had apologised to referee Iain Brines after hitting out at his decision to allow Celtic striker Tony Watt back on to the field following treatment in what he felt was a dangerous position.

The former Northern Ireland international said after the game: "I have been into see Iain and I have apologised for my language but it is a highly emotional game and I would have been very unhappy if they had scored.''

The apology was not enough to secure leniency from the SFA's fast-track tribunal, who also upheld dismissals for Motherwell goalkeeper Darren Randolph and Kilmarnock captain Manuel Pascali today.

Lomas had earlier received his suspended two-match ban for accusing Ross County midfielder Richard Brittain of "cheating'' over an incident that saw Saints striker Rowan Vine sent off.

And the former West Ham captain could face more action after being sent to the stand last night by Craig Thomson, shortly after Nigel Hasselbaink missed a penalty.

"I kicked a water bottle,'' Lomas explained after the defeat. "It was frustration. I said to the fourth official he could've used a bit of common-sense.''
