Defender Rob Kiernan will miss Rangers' next two games, starting with Sunday's meeting with Celtic, after losing an appeal against a red card.

Kiernan was sent off in the 3-2 defeat of St Johnstone on 1 March for a tackle on striker Graham Cummins.

After the Ibrox club lodged an appeal, the 26-year-old was allowed to play in Saturday's 6-0 Scottish Cup quarter-final win over Hamilton Academical.

But the claim of wrongful dismissal for serious foul play has been dismissed.

The Scottish FA convened a disciplinary tribunal on Thursday.

The Irish defender will also miss the Premiership match against Hamilton at Ibrox on 18 March.
