Graeme Shinnie was booked when he was deemed to have dived in the box under pressure from Evangelos Oikonomou.

"Graeme is adamant it was a penalty," Butcher said. "That now gets him suspended. But in the end it was a typical 0-0. I thought both teams were fully committed and showed a great attitude.

"It's two great points for the Highlands - a point for us, a point for them.

"It keeps up moving up. We've got four games to go (before the split) and we are five points ahead of some of the other teams, that's a lot of points.

"The result was pretty fair too, neither team deserved to lose. Had Ross County scored at the start of the second half I wouldn't have grumbled.

"They were on top for the first 20, 25 minutes, but we changed it around and finished strongly."

All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
