Rangers fans are not surprised after Allan McGregor’s two-game ban was upheld this afternoon.
The Ibrox goalkeeper was offered a two-game suspension last Friday following a tackle on Lewis Ferguson that went unpunished in last week’s 4-2 win for his side against Aberdeen.
Rangers immediately appealed that decision, but have today learned that the SFA have upheld their decision.
And now he’s set to miss their next two games – starting with St Johnstone this weekend and ending in the Scottish Cup against Kilmarnock next Tuesday.
Rangers fans aren’t surprised at today’s development:
Rangers fans feel they’ve been on the receiving end of some unfair treatment when it comes to disciplinary matters.
On the same night McGregor was offered the two-game ban, Alfredo Morelos’ two-game ban for a red card in the same game was upgraded to three matches after a failed appeal.
Alan Power’s high tackle on Ryan Jack in the Scottish Cup game between Kilmarnock and Rangers a day later only earned the Irishman a booking when a red card may have been more appropriate.
But many expected the SFA Compliance Officer may have decided to upgrade that punishment – like happened with McGregor.
Last night, however, it was confirmed the SFA would not act on the tackle, seeing Power avoid suspension.
