The 37-year-old was charged after colliding with Aberdeen’s Lewis Ferguson last week.

Rangers goalkeeper Allan McGregor has lost his appeal against a violent conduct charge and will be banned for two games, Press Association Sport Understands.

McGregor, 37, was adjudged to have slid into Aberdeen’s Lewis Ferguson with his studs up during last week’s win at Pittodrie.

The Scotland number one challenged the charge, but it was upheld at Hampden Park by the Scottish Football Association on Wednesday and he has been suspended for two matches.

McGregor will miss Saturday’s home league game against St Johnstone and the Scottish Cup fourth-round replay against Kilmarnock.

Referee Bobby Madden did not caution McGregor, who was later issued with a notice of complaint.

Rangers failed in their bid to get striker Alfredo Morelos’s three-game ban overturned last week following his red card in the same match.

Morelos and Aberdeen defender Scott McKenna were both shown straight red cards by Madden for kicking out at each other early in the second half.
