Kent appeared at a Hampden hearing today and will now miss the Rangers clash with Motherwell on Sunday and one more fixture after the split.

Unbelievably it is understood that the panel had accepted that Kent did not strike Brown on the head or face but he will still serve a suspension.

An Ibrox spokesperson said: “We are extremely disappointed with the outcome regarding Ryan Kent. Rangers will defend the charge against them as robustly as possible.”

The club with no shame is basically defending violence and with Steven Gerrard making daft threats about the last derby of the season who knows what will happen next. If this whole sorry episode with Kent wasn’t bad enough the SFA today charged Scott Brown with celebrating at the final whistle.

Celtic Football Club has come out today and said they will fight the charge “vigorously”. Chris Sutton described the charge as a new low, while John Hartson commented that it was shambolic.
