Rangers Defender Jon Flanagan Charged by SFA After Elbow on Scott Brown

Rangers Defender Jon Flanagan Charged by SFA After Elbow on Scott Brown

Rangers full-back Jon Flanagan has been charged with violent conduct by the SFA following his elbow on Celtic skipper Scott Brown on Sunday afternoon.

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?
