MOTHERWELL boss Stephen Robinson has been hammered by a three-match touchline ban after his behaviour in a 7-1 loss to Rangers at Ibrox last month.

The Fir Park gaffer admitted to breaching disciplinary rule 203, which relates to a member of staff committing misconduct.

A judicial panel hearing at Hampden Park yesterday ruled he should serve a suspension, which will be increased to five games if he breaches the same rule before the end of the 2019/20 season.

Robinson was dismissed following his reaction Ibrox technical coach Tom Culshaw during a flashpoint moment in the game when he saw his defender Carl McHugh red carded and Steven Gerrard’s men awarded a penalty-kick.

He followed that up with criticism of referee Craig Thomson and the fourth official.

Motherwell’s next three matches are against St Mirren, Kilmarnock and Hamilton Accies.

The suspension capped a miserable week for the Irishman who also saw his side walloped 3-0 by Celtic at Parkhead in midweek.
