Dundee’s Darren O’Dea has been hit with a two-match ban following an incident during the drawn game with Livingston last month at Dens.
The Irishman was involved in a tangle with opposition sub Jack Hamilton in the 84th minute of the match with O’Dea falling to the turf holding his face.
Referee Bobby Madden dismissed the Livi player but the decision was later overturned on appeal.
O’Dea was subsequently issued with a fast-track notice of complaint by the SFA accused of breaching Disciplinary Rule 201 which states: “No player shall cause a match official to make an incorrect decision and/or support an error of judgement on the part of a match official by an act of simulation which results in that player’s team obtaining a substantial advantage.”
A hearing was set to take place on Monday but the player has accepted his punishment and will now miss the Scottish Cup tie with Queen of the South at Dens and the Premiership fixture against Hearts at Tynecastle.
The 31-year-old also apologised on social media saying: “I accept the SFA’s decision. In the heat of battle, I’ve reacted in the wrong manner to gain an advantage.
“I’m embarrassed by it as it’s not the example to set. I apologise to Livingston FC and Jack Hamilton.”
