Craig given one-match immediate ban

7th January 2019

Craig Levein has been handed an immediate one-match ban following post-match comments made after Hearts’ defeat to Rangers in December.

The manager was found to be in breach of Disciplinary Rule 72 at a Scottish FA judicial panel hearing at Hampden today, and the sanction means he will be banned from the dugout for the Jambos’ William Hill Scottish Cup tie against Livingston on January 20th.

Craig has also been given an additional one-match ban, suspended until December 31st.
