Motherwell's Stephen Robinson given touchline ban but cleared for cup final
Motherwell manager Stephen Robinson will be able to stand on the touchline during the Scottish League Cup final after receiving a one-match suspension.
The 42-year-old Northern Irishman was sent to the stand along with Rangers' Pedro Caixinha during the semi-final.
He would have had to watch his side face Celtic from the Hampden stand had he been banned for three matches.
But, after a Scottish FA hearing, he was given a one-match ban plus another suspended for good behaviour.
That further suspension will come into play should he transgress again before the end of the season.
Motherwell defeated Rangers 2-0 and will meet holders Celtic in the final at Hampden on 26 November.
Caixinha, who has since been dismissed as boss at Ibrox, accepted a one-match suspension following his heated touchline exchange with Robinson.
However, the Motherwell manager decided to challenge his misconduct charge.
