Middlesbrough striker Jeremie Aliadiere has been handed a four-match ban after having his appeal against the red card he received at Liverpool rejected.

The Frenchman was sent off by referee Lee Mason at Anfield on Saturday after aiming a slap at Javier Mascherano, who had earlier appeared to make contact with his face in an off-the-ball incident. Boro appealed on the grounds that the offence did not amount to violent conduct.

However, a regulatory commission today rejected the claim as "frivolous" and increased the mandatory three-match ban for the offence to four.
