Unhappy Killie accept two-match ban but Jordan Jones insists he did not dive against Dundee

Unhappy Killie accept two-match ban but Jordan Jones insists he did not dive against Dundee

Kilmarnock have grudgingly accepted a two-match ban for attacker Jordan Jones for his dive that got the match-winning penalty at Dundee last weekend.

However, the Rugby Park outfit are sticking to their stance the player was not guilty of simulation.

That was made clear in a club statement.

“Following internal discussion, the club can confirm we will not challenge the Notice of Complaint submitted against Jordan Jones following our victory over Dundee.

“Jordan is adamant that he did not carry out an act of simulation, nor did he claim for a penalty kick or intend to deceive the referee.

“However, as part of the judicial panel system, this charge has been brought after former referees considered the evidence and whilst we have every right to deny the allegation we are not inclined to on this occasion as we had no additional substantive evidence to submit for consideration.

“Jordan will now be suspended for our upcoming Ladbrokes Premiership matches away to St Mirren on October 20 and at home to Hamilton on October 27.”

Earlier this week, as they complained to the SFA over ref Steven McLean being in charge despite family connections to Killie, angry fans pointed out if Jones was banned the games he missed would be against the two sides right above Dundee.

And there has been no indication if the SFA will taken action against McLean for what was a clear, if honest, error.

Meanwhile, highly rated Dens kid Lyall Cameron has signed a full-time deal on turning 16.

“We are delighted that Lyall had signed his first pro contract, said Dundee youth coach James McPake.
