Kilmarnock have lost their appeal against the red card shown to Kris Boyd in Saturday's 0-0 draw with Aberdeen.

Boyd, 35, was dismissed following his challenge on Aberdeen captain Graeme Shinnie and a Scottish FA fast-track hearing has upheld the decision.

The striker will now be suspended for Friday's Scottish Premiership match against Hearts and next Wednesday's trip to Dundee.

Steve Clarke's side are third in the table, level on points with Rangers.
