Watt wins appeal

15th September 2016

Tony Watt has yellow card removed from record after successful Hampden appeal.

Heart of Midlothian has successfully overturned the yellow card shown to Tony Watt during last Saturday’s Ladbrokes Premiership match against Hamilton Academical.

The striker was flashed a yellow card for simulation by referee Craig Thomson during the first-half after a clash inside the opposition box.

The club appealed the decision at Hampden this morning and the claim was upheld, meaning the caution has been removed from Watt’s record.
