Rangers keeper Allan McGregor has lost his appeal against the two-match ban following his tackle on Aberdeen’s Lewis Ferguson last Wednesday.

The Ibrox No.1 escaped punishment from referee Bobby Madden during the Scottish Premiership clash at Pittodrie for a studs-up challenge on the Dons midfielder, but SFA compliance officer Clare Whyte deemed it worthy of review and issued a citation.

Th hearing had been due to be heard on Tuesday but was pushed back today as Rangers’ lawyer had a prior engagment.

Now the verdict has been delivered – and it’s not good news for McGregor or his club.

The Scotland star had come out to collect an incoming ball in front of the 19- year-old midfielder, but appeared to straighten his leg and leave his studs up as he connected with Ferguson.

After the game, Rangers manager Steven Gerrard had declared his intention to appeal the statutory two-match ban for violent conduct if and when it was cited, saying: "In terms of McGregor, you know what we are doing with that one."

But the SFA have upheld the ban and McGregor will now miss Rangers' Premiership clash with St Johnstone and the Scottish Cup replay against Kilmarnock.
