Rangers accept suspension offered to Bilel Mohsni


Rangers have announced that they have accepted the offer of a fixed suspension of two games for defender Bilel Mohsni following a Scottish FA Notice of Complaint cited the Tunisian for “striking or attempting to strike an opponent with your arm or hand”.

Mohsni will actually serve a three match ban, due to his red card in the pre-season friendly against Derby County. He will now miss Saturday’s clash with Livingston as well as the home game with Raith Rovers on October 18th and the Challenge Cup tie with East Fife on the 21st.


However, the Ibrox side have rejected the offer of a two game ban for striker Kris Boyd and the player will now have to appear at a hearing on Thursday October 9th.

Boyd was issued with a notice of complaint for “head-butting or attempting to head-butt” Hibs defender Jordan Forster late on in the second half.
