Bob Malcolm has been handed a two-match touchline ban after admitting an FA charge of misconduct.

The coach was involved in a bust-up with striker Stephen Dobbie during the 1-0 defeat against Burnley last weekend.

Boss Barry Ferguson played the incident down and insisted the pair made up shortly after the game and are ‘the best of pals’ off the field.

But after being sent video evidence of the incident, the FA charged the Scotsman with misconduct yesterday and issued a two-match ban along with a £1,000 fine.
