The Irish midfielder was shown a red card by referee Alan Muir during the first half of Saturday's goalless draw at Easter Road, just 34 seconds after replacing the injured Murray Davidson.

But the Perth outfit say they intend to challenge the red card and have now written to the Scottish Football Association to lodge their protest.

A statement on the club's official website said: "Saints have today lodged an appeal with the SFA against Paddy Cregg's dismissal in Saturday's game against Hibernian.

"The midfielder was red carded by Muir within a minute of him replacing the injured Murray Davidson in the 30th minute of the match."

Cregg's quickfire sending off came just seven days after striker Rory Fallon was also shown a straight red card after only 51 seconds after coming on as a substitute in their 2-0 defeat against Aberdeen.

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.
