Kilmarnock striker Josh Magennis has been spared a suspension after a clash with team-mate Jamie Hamill.

The duo angrily squared up during Saturday's 4-1 win at Partick Thistle, with the pair momentarily going head-to-head.

The Scottish Football Association's compliance officer offered the Northern Ireland international a two-match ban.

However, the violent conduct referral was rejected by a SFA tribunal, with no sanction imposed.

"I understand why the incident was highlighted but I am really glad the decision was overturned and I can now concentrate on my football," said Magennis.
