Victor Wanyama: Celtic defender has won appeal over red card

Wanyama was dismissed by referee Bobby Madden in a controversial fixture against St Mirren on 31 March for a foul on Paul McGowan.

But the offence was downgraded to a yellow card for unsporting behaviour during a Scottish Football Association disciplinary tribunal on Thursday.

Celtic manager Neil Lennon has also been asked by the SFA to explain comments he directed at St Mirren defender Jim Goodwin during the same match.

Buddies forward Esmael Goncalves has already accepted a two-match suspension for simulation in the same game, which led to McGowan netting a late penalty in the 1-1 draw.

riting a minute by minute account on Berbatov would be like chronicling the days of the guy punished for sloth in the movie Se7en. Day 4 - lay in bed, did nothing - 15th minute, stood there did nothing .
