Rangers striker Kemar Roofe forced to wait on ban sweat as SFA delay hearing


Rangers striker Kemar Roofe’s Scottish Football Association fast-track hearing has been delayed by 24 hours.

Roofe was due to learn his fate following his lunge on St Johnstone midfielder Murray Davidson but the hearing has been rescheduled for Wednesday.

The forward was booked for the challenge but subsequently accused of serious foul play, with a two-match ban awaiting him if Rangers fail to successfully challenge the charge.

St Johnstone boss Callum Davidson commented on the challenge at full-time last Wednesday.

“It’s one of those, I don’t think there was any malice in the challenge, but it doesn’t look great,” he said. “TV pictures will slow it down and make it look worse than it is.

“The only thing I know is that I have lost my player from the resulting challenge.

“Is he a doubt for the final? It’s not great.

“It’s a concern with the cup final coming up. I don’t know if he needs a scan, I will know more in the morning.

“It’s one of those, probably the decisions didn’t quite go for us today. Little things in the game that could have helped us out.”
