Chris Hegarty: Has accepted a two-match ban from the SFA

Rangers defender Chris Hegarty has accepted a two-match ban for stamping on an opponent during his team's goalless draw at Montrose.

Hegarty was given until today to respond to the Scottish Football Association notice of complaint but has informed compliance officer Vincent Lunny that he has accepted the charge.

The incident is believed to have occurred just after the half-hour mark in Saturday's Links Park draw, which ultimately proved enough for Rangers to clinch the Irn-Bru Third Division title.

The 20-year-old Northern Irishman will now sit out Sunday's trip to Hampden, where Rangers will take on Queen's Park, and the Ibrox meeting with Clyde on April 13.

Hegarty has made 27 first-team appearances for Rangers this season.

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
