Former Ireland international Darren O'Dea has been banned for two matches after feigning injury in a match between Dundee and Aberdeen on Stephen's Day.
The 31-year-old was involved in a tussle with Livingston striker Jack Hamilton during the game, and simulated that he had been hit in the face, before going down clutching his head.
Hamilton received a straight red card as a result of the incident, but is now available to play after being cleared by Scottish FA of any wrongdoing.
Livingston striker Jack Hamilton is free to face Aberdeen on Saturday after the club lodge an appeal against the teenager's Boxing Day red card.

Dundee defender O'Dea on the other hand, will serve a two match ban for his histrionics, and has apologised for his actions in the wake of the decision:
I accept the SFA’s decision. In the heat of battle I’ve reacted in the wrong manner to gain an advantage. I’m embarrassed by it as it’s not the example to set. I apologise to Livingston FC and Jack Hamilton.

Dundee will not contest the ban handed down to their player, who will miss his side's next two games with Hearts and Motherwell.
