Benfica midfielder Augustin Binya has been banned for six UEFA matches following his red card for a high challenge on Scott Brown in the Champions League clash with Celtic.

Scotland international Brown avoided injury but claimed Binya had tried to break his leg with the tackle in the 85th minute of the November 6 match at Parkhead, which Celtic won 1-0.

UEFA´s control and disciplinary body announced their verdict on Friday morning, having deliberated on the case on Thursday. In a statement on, European football´s governing body´s website, Binya´s challenge was described as one which "seriously endangered the physical health of the opposing player".
