Douglas was dismissed after 64 minutes of the 1-0 defeat in Dingwall following a challenge on Ivan Sproule.

However, after reviewing the incident on Thursday at Hampden the SFA have upheld the original decision.

United will be without Douglas for their next two matches - against St Johnstone on Saturday, and next week's trip to Inverness.

But the 23-year-old will be available for the final game of the season when United host Scottish Champions Celtic on 19 May at Tannadice.

wful, awful pundit. He was crap on BBC, and offered a little more analysis than Robbie Savage - apart from the delivery of banality in a sexy accent. Also, as I'm Irish he'll never be more then a slimy, hand-balling f**ker in my eyes.
