Aberdeen will appeal against the red card shown to striker Rory Fallon in the match against Rangers on Saturday.

The New Zealand international was sent off after referee Willie Collum adjudged him to have elbowed Dorin Goian in the 2-1 defeat.

The offence carries an automatic two-match ban and the Scottish Football Association Fast Track panel will hear Aberdeen's case on Thursday.

If unsuccessful, Fallon will miss Monday's match against St Johnstone.

On Thursday, the SFA's Fast Track Tribunal will also hear appeals of Dundee's Rab Douglas, Inverness Caledonian Thistle's Chris Hogg and Dunfermline's Gary Mason who are all appealing against sendings-off.
