SFA cites St Mirren's Esmael Goncalves for simulation

Esmael Goncalves

St Mirren forward Esmael Goncalves has been issued with a notice of complaint for diving during Sunday's 1-1 draw with Celtic.

The Portuguese has been offered a two-match ban for beaching disciplinary rule 202, causing a match official to make an incorrect decision by committing an act of simulation.

Ref Bobby Madden judged that Goncalves had been tripped by Emilio Izaguirre, but TV pictures cast doubt on the call.

Goncalves has until Thursday to reply.
