The St Johnstone defender was caught on camera elbowing the Celtic defender during the game at Celtic Park on Saturday 11 May.

The incident, which was missed by referee Alan Muir, was spotted by the SFA compliance officer, who offered Wright a two-game suspension.

The player elected to have a personal hearing, where the two-game ban was upheld.

Wright will now miss St Johnstone's final game of the season against Motherwell - where victory could hand them a ticket to the Europa League qualifiers - and the opening league fixture of next season.

xcellent! Not sure if he is any good as a manager (never thought about it) but the 'headbutt in the technical area' and what he said to Pelligrini were just brilliant, it was as if he was trying to recreate the end of the Alan Partridge Xmas special when Alan punched a man in a wheelchair and verbally abused Tony Heirs.
