THE SCOTTISH SUN 🔵 John Beaton red card overturned by SFA three days before Rangers v Celtic clash

OLD FIRM referee John Beaton has seen a red card overturned on appeal just days out from his appearance at the Ibrox showdown.

Inverness reacted with fury when the experienced official booked Cammy Kerr for simulation before the break during the 1-0 defeat at Firhill, then gave him second yellow card for a foul on Thistle’s Aidan Fitzpatrick.

Beaton would go on to show a second red card of the day to Inverness assistant Gary Bollan after the final whistle.

But a tribunal today has ruled that Kerr SHOULDN’T HAVE been booked for simulation – and subsequently overturned the player’s initial yellow, and red card.

It all doesn’t do Inverness much good, who now find themselves four points adrift in the play-off relegation spot.

Manager Duncan Ferguson said at the time: « I thought we were brilliant throughout the game.

« Another harsh decision, unfortunately. Simulation, we will appeal it and we will win it, because there is no simulation.

« Cammy made about three fouls in the whole game and he got a red card.

« It was never, ever simulation so it was another poor decision by the referee.

« Their goal is a foul, or a penalty, for us.

« The referee doesn’t give the decision and they break up the park and score.

« So two poor decisions from the referee have cost us the game this week. »
