Dundee United manager Mixu Paatelainen has been given a suspended two-match ban after "shouting and gesticulating" towards Dundee fans.

The incident took place near the end of his side's 2-2 derby draw at Tannadice on 20 March.

The touchline ban will only take effect if Paatelainen commits a further breach of Scottish FA disciplinary rules before the end of 2016.

United, who are bottom of the Scottish Premiership, host Hamilton on Sunday.

The SFA chargeexternal-link said of Paatelainen: "In that on or around the 91st minute you committed misconduct by shouting and gesticulating at away supporters."
