Kilmarnock have lost their appeal against the red card that was given to Stuart Findlay in the recent win over Ross County.

The Rugby Park club have announced the decision. The club instantly appealed the decision, and a Fast Track Tribunal was held.

Referee’s decision was upheld

Unfortunately for Kilmarnock though, the referee’s decision was upheld, and the player will miss the game against Hamilton next week.

Kilmarnock are not in action this week as they have been knocked out of the Betfred Cup. Kilmarnock manager Alex Dyer won’t be happy with the decision you would think. After all, when interviewed after the game he was adamant that Findlay had touched the ball.

 

However, the decision has now been made, and Findlay has to sit out the next league game.

Responded well to setback

Even though Kilmarnock responded very well to going a man down after less than 10 minutes – they won the game 3-1 – Dyer would still have wanted one of his most important players available for the game against Hamilton.

However, it is not to be. The Rugby Park side must plan for the game without a player who has been a first-regular for practically the entire season.

The good thing for Kilmarnock is that they do not need to organise their defensive changes straight away. They have time to work on things with their next game not for another week. However, it is still a blow that one of their most important players will miss their next league game.
