Kilmarnock: Daniel Bachmann wins Rangers red card appeal

By Scott MullenBBC Sport Scotland

Kilmarnock have successfully overturned the red card given to goalkeeper Daniel Bachmann in the 5-0 Scottish Cup hammering by Rangers.

Bachmann was dismissed by Alan Muir for a perceived elbow on Glen Kamara 25 minutes into Wednesday's Ibrox defeat.

Killie boss Steve Clarke described the decision as a "joke" while claiming the officials "decided the game".

An appeal was submitted to the Scottish FA, and the dismissal was rescinded following a hearing on Friday.

It means the Austrian goalkeeper, 24, who was sent off as his team were 1-0 down, will be eligible to face Livingston away on Saturday in the Scottish Premiership.
