Celtic goalkeeper Artur Boruc has escaped with a £500 fine and a severe reprimand over gestures he made to Rangers fans during the last Old Firm derby.
Almost two months after the incident on August 31, Boruc had his case for improper conduct heard by a Scottish Football Association disciplinary committee on Thursday.
He was found guilty, fined, severely censured and warned about his future conduct. He has seven working days to appeal the decision.
At the same disciplinary meeting, Hibernian boss Mixu Paatelainen lost his appeal against the four-match touchline ban imposed following his sending off in the August 26 Co-operative Insurance Cup defeat to Morton.
The length of the punishment was the result of the dismissal being Paatelainen's second of the campaign.
He served a two-match ban after being sent to the stands during pre-season.
His latest suspension will take effect in seven days time and will therefore begin with the Clydesdale Bank Premier League trip to Hibernian on November 1.
