Hearts to contest Jamie Hamill complaint over Derek Adams clash

Hearts defender Jamie Hamill

Hearts are to contest the notice of complaint issued to Jamie Hamill for his dismissal against Ross County.

The 27-year-old was shown a second yellow card for clashing with County manager Derek Adams following his successful penalty in a 2-0 victory at Tynecastle.

Hamill, who is accused of knocking Adams to the ground, missed the 2-1 Edinburgh derby victory at Easter Road.

The hearing will take place at Hampden Park on Thursday, 8 May.

Hamill is accused of breaking disciplinary rule 201 - which includes "any physical violence" - through "excessive misconduct at a match by knocking Derek Adams, manager of Ross County FC, to the ground".
