KILMARNOCK have been given mixed news on the suspension front after Steve Clarke’s men ended the Aberdeen game with eight players on the pitch.

Three red cards in a game they lost 1-0 at Rugby Park to Aberdeen.

After the game, Steve Clarke absolutely demolished Stevie McLean for his refereeing performance and intimated he would be asking for McLean never to referee a Killie game again as reported in the Evening Times.

Kilmarnock were incensed by two of the sendings off – Kirk Broadfoot’s and Rory McKenzie’s.

Today it has been announced the SFA have upheld Broadfoot’s ban and he will now miss the next three games, one of them being this Saturday at Celtic Park. 

However, the SFA have given the Ayrshire men a boost with the news Rory McKenzie will be free to play in Paradise after having his red card reduced to a yellow.

Celtic are looking to virtually wrap up the title this weekend – a win would see the bhoys 12 points clear with their nearest rivals only having 12 more points to play for.

It’s pivotal Celtic get the win before their two tough away days to Pittodrie and Ibrox.
