Rangers' Ryan Jack loses appeal against red card he received at Aberdeen

Rangers submitted an appeal to the Scottish FA after the sending off and three-match ban Jack received in the Light Blues 2-1 win at Pittodrie.

Rangers 2 Hibs 3, August 12: John Beaton dismisses Jack after a clash with Anthony Stokes, but the decision is later overturned after an appeal.

Although Jack looked to have won the ball first, Willie Collum went straight for his red card after the former Aberdeen star connected with the ankle of the oncoming May.

But a Fast Track Disciplinary Tribunal threw out the appeal, with the original three-match suspension being applied.

It was the fourth time this season that the 25-year-old had been dismissed following red cards at home to Hibernian and Kilmarnock, as well as away at Hamilton.

The third game of his ban is down to the previous red card this season which wasn't rescinded but due to the SFA's procedures that won't kick in until two weeks after the offence.

That means he will be available for Rangers' game against St Johnstone on December 16 but will then be suspended for the trip to Kilmarnock on December 23.
