Muscat gets eight game suspension

Melbourne Victory skipper Kevin Muscat will end his career in disgrace after being suspended for the remainder of the A-League season.

The Football Federation Australia (FFA) disciplinary committee handed down a total ban of eight weeks, including a match he's already served, for his horrific tackle on Melbourne Heart youngster Adrian Zahra during last weekend's heated derby.

With three matches of the regular season left to play the ban ensures the 37-year-old will take no further part in the competition even if Melbourne make it all the way to the grand final.

Should they not he will have to serve the remainder of the weeks next season.

But with Muscat widely expected to be playing his last A-League season, the ban looks to have all but ended his career.

He will however be able to play in the Victory's upcoming Asian Champions League campaign - a domestic suspension having no bearing on the ACL competition.

During the hearing Muscat read from a prepared statement saying that he "deeply regretted" the tackle and he "spent most of Saturday night worrying about Adrian".

He implored the committee to realise that he "didn't intend to injure Adrian" and referred to the incident as nothing more than a grossly "mistimed tackle".
