Four match ban for Bhoys manager Strachan

Celtic manager Gordon Strachan has been ordered to serve a four-match touchline ban following his touchline row with a steward at Pittodrie in August.

Strachan was sent to the stands by referee Charlie Richmond following the incident in the August 19 match.

Today he was found guilty by the Scottish Football Association's disciplinary committee of an 'unacceptable conduct' offence.

Celtic coach Tommy Burns said at the time that Strachan had been defending his assistant Garry Pendrey following accusations he had made a rude gesture to the Aberdeen fans behind the dugout.

Hearts coach Stephen Frail avoided a two-match ban after being found not guilty of a dissent charge.

He was sent to the stands during his team's match at Kilmarnock on October 27.

Frail will be able to lead out Hearts at Hampden for tomorrow's CIS Insurance Cup semi-final against Rangers.

He reacted angrily to a handball decision against Robbie Neilson against Killie, and would have had to take a seat in the stands for the cup clash if his appeal failed.

Despite Frail admitting in the wake of the incident that he had 'let everyone down with the way I reacted', he successfully challenged the two-game ban.

Frail told www.heartsfc.co.uk: 'It is good to get it sorted out. It is certainly good to get the decision.

'We would have had to get on with it if we did not get it but thankfully it is the same as the last few weeks now. We can now forget about it and get on with it tomorrow night.'
