Dundee have appealed against Neil McCann's two-match touchline ban for his post-match behaviour after a Premiership game against St Johnstone.

McCann was involved in a confrontation with keeper Zander Clark earlier this month as they left the dugout area following the league game at Dens Park.

Clark has also been given a two-game suspension for his part in the clash.

McCann was due to be banned from the dugout for Sunday's league game against Hearts and Wednesday's trip to Celtic.

Clark will be unavailable for Saints' league games against Aberdeen on Saturday and Motherwell on 7 April.

McCann, who dismissed the incident as "handbags" at the time, denied slapping Clark, who was the Perth side's substitute goalkeeper at Dens Park.
