St Mirren fail to overturn Marc McAusland red card

Marc McAusland was sent off at Tynecastle

St Mirren have lost their appeal against the red card defender Marc McAusland picked up during last week's 2-1 defeat at Hearts.

McAusland was sent off for denying Dale Carrick a goalscoring opportunity, with Jamie Hamill converting the penalty.

The club's decision to contest the ruling allowed him to feature in Sunday's 1-0 loss at Celtic.

The 25-year-old will now sit out the Premiership game at home to Aberdeen on 15 February.
