RYAN JACK today got the red card received in the match at Ibrox against Kilmarnock on Wednesday 25 October, rescinded by the SFA’s Disciplinary Tribunal.
Incredibly this is the second red card he has seen thrown out by the Disciplinary Tribunal since joining Rangers from Aberdeen. Jack was also sent off in the controversial match against Hibs at Ibrox which Neil pennon’s side won 3-2. Jack appealed that red and was successful and today he’s pulled off the same trick!
At the fast track hearing to consider his violet conduct when he appeared to kick and head-butt ex-Rangers defender Kirk Broadfoot after Rangers were awarded a controversial penalty in the 90th minutes with the score at 1-0 to the Ibrox side.
There was a considerable delay in dealing with the incident before Jack was dismissed, Rangers missed the penalty and Killie went up the park and equalised. This sequence of events meant that Rangers had failed to win again and Pedro Caixinha paid the price with his job.
But now at the Fast Track Tribunal Hearing Jack’s dismissal for violent conduct has been rescinded, and replaced with a caution for the offence of unsporting behaviour. Jack’s fee has also been returned as his appeal has been successful.
Meanwhile Motherwell manager Stephen Robinson has received a one match suspension, imposed immediately and a further one match suspension to be imposed in the event of a repeat offence, resulting from his misconduct on the touchline in the Betfred League Cup semi-final against Rangers. The Motherwell manager appealed against his sending off, pointing out that it was the then Rangers manager Pedro Caixinha who had lost the plot.
Robinson will have lost his fee.
