Watch: McGregor's challenge on Ferguson

Rangers goalkeeper Allan McGregor will learn on Wednesday whether he has successfully appealed against a two-game ban after his disciplinary hearing was delayed at his club's request.

McGregor, 37, faces a suspension for violent conduct against Aberdeen.

He appeared to aim a kick at Lewis Ferguson after coming out to claim the ball ahead of the Dons midfielder.

The fast-track hearing was due to take place on Tuesday but has been pushed back 24 hours.

Rangers lost their appeal against the red card shown to Alfredo Morelos in the 4-2 win at Pittodrie last Wednesday.

McGregor 'likes to leave a bit on you' - analysis

Former Rangers striker Billy Dodds on Sportsound:

"I know Allan McGregor well. He is a good lad but he has developed a habit of picking up the ball and shoulder-charging people. He likes to leave a bit on you. It is the first time I have seen him do that with his foot. I think they have called it correctly."

Former Celtic striker Scott McDonald on Sportsound:

"Anywhere else on the field it is a straight red card. It is endangering an opponent. He has already got the ball in his hands and he has gone in with a straight leg. Lewis Ferguson is a lucky boy. He could have done worse damage to him."
