Flanagan played the full 90 minutes in the Gers’ comfortable 2-0 victory over their bitter Glasgow rivals but was lucky not to be sent off early in the second-half, with the score only at 1-0.
The ex-Liverpool defender was shown a yellow card by referee Kevin Clancy after his clash with Brown, with Hoops interim boss Neil Lennon calling the punishment ‘unacceptable’ in his post-match interview.
And now it seems the beaks at the Scottish Football Association agree with Lennon, after news broke earlier this afternoon of Flanagan’s citation.
According to STV, the 26-year-old will attend a personal hearing on Thursday but is staring down the barrel at a minimum two-game suspension for the incident but what do you think?
Does Flanagan deserve a spell on the sidelines for his actions?
