Aberdeen defender Shay Logan will serve a one-game ban for his post-match red card against Celtic on Sunday.

The 26-year-old full-back has been reported by referee Alan Muir for using "offensive and insulting language" following the Dons' 2-1 loss.

It means Logan will be suspended for the 23 November league visit to Partick Thistle.

"Shay should have kept his cool," manager Derek McInnes told BBC Radio Scotland after the match.

"It was something he said in frustration to the linesman in the tunnel. They took offence to it and they have red-carded him.

"He, like the rest of my players, is a bit aggrieved at a couple of decisions in the build-up to the goals."

Celtic skipper Scott Brown was ordered off with eight minutes remaining at Pittodrie following his second yellow card.

The score was 1-1 when the visitors were reduced to 10 men, with Stefan Johansen replying to Adam Rooney's opener for the hosts.

Virgil van Dijk knocked in a 90th-minute corner to send Celtic top of the Premiership.
