McCoist blasts Aluko verdict

Published Add your comment

Rangers manager Ally McCoist has furiously hit out at the decision to hand Sone Aluko a two-match ban for diving.

The 22-year-old was found guilty of simulation after winning a penalty in Saturday's 2-1 win over Dunfermline in the Clydesdale Bank Premier League. He was issued with a notice of complaint by the SFA's compliance officer Vincent Lunny and offered a fixed suspension of two games, which was swiftly rejected by the Scottish champions.

The matter was referred to the judicial panel before a fast-track tribunal was convened on Thursday, which decided that the sanctions should stand, meaning Aluko misses SPL games against Hibernian and Inverness. And McCoist reacted angrily to the verdict and believes his player has now been branded a "cheat" and a "liar".
