Patrick Cregg (on ground) fails in appeal to have ban overturned

The Irish midfielder was sent off for a challenge on Hibernian's Paul Cairney just seconds after coming off the bench during the goalless draw between the sides at Easter Road on December 21.

After the match his manager Tommy Wright admitted he 'had no complaints over the dismissal' but the Saints decided to lodge an appeal to the Hampden governing body last Monday.

At a hearing of the SFA's disciplinary tribunal it was decided the punishment should stand, ruling him out of the New Year's Day clash with Motherwell and the trip to Ross County on Saturday.

couple of wins and everything is OK! Sorry you still haven't got a striker who can consistently goals. Keep searching. I don't think Liverpool will make top four not even Europa League this time around.

f he can find the right player? Surely the manager of one of Europe's top clubs has a well-researched short-list and has a good idea of who he wants to bring on-board? If I can find the right player sounds like someone going out on Saturday night on the pull, and the nearer you get to midnight the lower your standards drop.
