Wanyama wins appeal

Celtic midfielder Victor Wanyama is free to play in the Scottish Cup semi-finals after winning an appeal against his St Mirren Park red card.

The Kenyan was sent off for serious foul play following a foul on Paul McGowan during a 1-1 draw against St Mirren on March 31.

But the offence was downgraded to a yellow card for unsporting behaviour during a Scottish Football Association disciplinary tribunal. Wanyama has now avoided a two-match suspension which would have ruled him out of Sunday's Hampden clash against Dundee United.

After the Scottish Premier League match in Paisley, Celtic manager Neil Lennon was scathing of the performance of referee Bobby Madden, who controversially disallowed a St Mirren goal and denied them a strong penalty claim for handball before giving the home side a late penalty for an incident which later earned Esmael Goncalves a two-match ban for diving.

Lennon said: "That was the most appalling refereeing performance I have seen for a long, long time."

Lennon was later issued with a misconduct charge by the SFA over "repeated use of offensive, insulting and abusive language" following a verbal clash with St Mirren captain Jim Goodwin.

Information from the Press Association was used in this report.
