Randolph fails to overturn ban

Motherwell goalkeeper Darren Randolph has had his two-game ban

upheld by the Scottish Foofball Association’s judicial panel.

SFA compliance officer Vincent Lunny had issued a complaint

after Randolph appeared to kick out at Hearts’ Callum Paterson.

Motherwell appealed the suspension, but they have failed to have

the ban overturned with the judicial panel feeling the incident

constituted violent conduct.

It means Randolph will miss this weekend’s Scottish Cup game

against Aberdeen as well as the SPL encounter with Ross County.

Lee Hollis is set to replace Randolph in Stuart McCall’s side

for those two games.
