Rangers manager Mark Warburton accepts one match ban The former Brentford manager said he prides himself on being respectful


Rangers manager Mark Warburton has accepted a one match ban from the Scottish FA after he was accused of using ‘offensive, abusing and insulting language’ at match officials.

The Ibrox manager was left raging following Aberdeen being awarded a free kick which led to James Maddison’s late winner at Pittodrie on Sunday.

With Warburton accepting the ban it means he will sit out Saturday’s league match against Partick Thistle.

Speaking to the official club website, Warburton said: “My frustration over two big decisions hasn’t changed, but it is what it is – a process – so it will be a one-match ban.

“I pride myself on being respectful and being disciplined and if I appeared to lose that then you deserve to be punished accordingly. I’m not proud of that, if that is the case, but I think my frustration was very evident.

“The two decisions, when we looked at it post-match, it was quite clear we were right in our assumptions.”
