Rangers’ Appeal of Jon Flanagan Ban For Elbow on Scott Brown ‘Upheld’

Rangers’ Appeal of Jon Flanagan Ban For Elbow on Scott Brown ‘Upheld’

Rangers’ appeal of Jon Flanagan’s ban for an elbow on Scott Brown has been ‘upheld’, according to reports.

The Ibrox defender was handed a retrospective two-game ban following an incident between him and Brown in last weekend’s Scottish Premiership clash between Rangers and Celtic at Ibrox.

Flanagan appeared to catch Brown in the throat with his elbow as Rangers defended a corner in the first half.

The incident was seen by referee Kevin Clancy and he showed Flanagan a yellow card for it.

But the SFA Compliance Officer believed Flanagan deserved a more severe punishment for it.

That led to a two-game ban and a subsequent appeal from Rangers – and they have reportedly won that.

According to thescottishsun.co.uk‘s Andy Devlin:

That now means Flanagan will be able to play Kilmarnock on Sunday and then be free to play the first game of next season.

What’s your view – is Flanagan right to avoid a ban?
