ABERDEEN have lost their appeal against Scott McKenna’s two-game ban handed out by the SFA following his high challenge on Odsonne Edouard in Celtic’s 1-0  win at Parkhead on Saturday.

The Scotland international defender was charged with serious foul play after the lunge on the Frenchman that saw him limp off before the interval.

The Dons decided to appeal the two-match suspension that was offered following a fast track notice of complaint, with Pittodrie boss Derek McInnes arguing McKenna cleared the ball before colliding with the £9million frontman.

The SFA disagreed and, following yesterday’s hearing at Hampden Park, decided the case against McKenna had been proven.

The centre-half will now miss the forthcoming games against St Mirren and Hearts.
