The Hibs man caught Irvine with a robust challenge during the 1-1 draw with Dundee at Easter Road on Saturday, but compliance officer Vincent Lunny has decided not to take any further action.

The Scottish FA has the power to retrospectively punish dangerous challenges but it has been decided that referee Craig Charleston made a judgement on the tackle during the game.

An SFA spokesperson said: "The incident will not be taken forward.

"The compliance office looks at incidents that were not witnessed by the match officials."

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
