St. Johnstone’s Steve Lomas handed touchline ban


Lomas has been handed a one match touchline ban following the incident at Ibrox during his first game in charge of the McDiarmid Park side. It means that Steve Lomas will be in the stand for Saturday’s game against Hearts at Tynecastle.

A statement on St Johnstone’s website read: “The club was contacted by the SFA’s Judicial Panel following our game against Rangers at Ibrox on 19th November regarding a report of alleged misconduct by the new Saints manager which was brought to their attention by the police match commander.

“The club was offered the opportunity for the manager to attend a hearing or accept a one-match ban.

“Although the club is disappointed that this incident has reached the Judicial Panel, it has chosen to accept the one-match ban.”
