Walker to serve two-game ban

11th August 2016

Jamie Walker unsuccessful in appeal to have ban overturned.

Jamie Walker will be forced to sit out Hearts’ next two games after failing to have his offer of a ban overturned.

The winger attended a disciplinary hearing at Hampden today to contest the charge of committing an act of simulation, causing a match official to make an incorrect decision, but was unsuccessful in his appeal.

Heart of Midlothian Football Club is deeply disappointed with the opinion of the panel, which means Walker will now miss the upcoming Ladbrokes Premiership matches against Aberdeen and Inverness Caledonian Thistle.
