Dundee have announced they will be appealing against the two-match ban handed to manager Neil McCann by the SFA.
The Dens boss had travelled through to Hampden yesterday to hear his fate after being issued with a notice of complaint following a bust-up with St Johnstone’s Zander Clark at the end of the Tayside derby at Dens Park on March 10.
McCann was found guilty of falling foul of Disciplinary Rule 203 – “No member of team staff shall commit misconduct at a match”.
The 43-year-old was given a two-game suspension, effective immediately, meaning he would be in the stands for Sunday’s crunch game with Hearts at Dens and the following fixture with Celtic at Parkhead next Wednesday.
Now though the club has appealed the punishment meaning McCann will be in the dug-out for the Jambos game.
Clark was also given a two-match ban which St Johnstone have accepted.
