Man­ager Pe­ter Hous­ton has been handed a one-match touch­line ban for his Ibrox crit­i­cism of referee John McKen­drick. Hous­ton ad­mit­ted crit­i­cis­ing the match of­fi­cials in such a way that in­di­cated “bias and in­com­pe­tence on their part”, dur­ing an SFA dis­ci­plinary hear­ing. The former Dundee United man­ager will have to sit in the stand for the Lad­brokes Cham­pi­onship match against St Mir­ren on Satur­day and has been given a fur­ther one-game sus­pended ban. Hous­ton was cited for com­ments dur­ing an in­ter­view with Falkirk’s own on­line TV sta­tion af­ter their 3-1 de­feat by Rangers on Oc­to­ber 3.
