Kilmarnock manager Kenny Shiels given touchline ban by SFA
Kilmarnock manager Kenny Shiels has been given a two-match touchline ban - one of which is suspended - after comments made about a referee.
A Scottish FA judicial panel charged Shiels with a breach of rule 68, which prohibits criticism of officials.
The comments Shiels made related to refereeing decisions made in a match between Celtic and St Johnstone.
Shiels is banned for one match, while a second one-match ban is suspended until the end of season 2012/13.
The Northern Irishman also faced a charge of an alleged breach of rule 69, which prohibits managers and players from making comments about officials in advance of matches.
The Celtic v St Johnstone match took place a few days before Celtic visited Kilmarnock's Rugby Park and clinched the Scottish Premier League with a 6-0 win.
However, the judicial panel deemed there had been no breach of rule 69 and therefore no sanctions would apply.
