Steven Gerrard: Rangers manager offered one-game ban for Livingston outburst

Steven Gerrard has been offered a one-match ban by the SFA after being sent off against Livingston on Wednesday.

The Rangers manager was shown two yellow cards in quick succession after swearing at referee John Beaton on the pitch at half-time.

Gerrard reacted angrily after Beaton booked striker Alfredo Morelos for simulation during the first half of the match, which ended in a 1-0 win for Rangers.

The former Liverpool manager has been accused of breaching the SFA’s disciplinary rule 203, which prohibits “misconduct at a match”, and he could now face a Hampden hearing on March 25 if Rangers decide to contest his suspension.

If the club accepts the one-match ban, Gerrard will miss Saturday’s game against St Mirren at Ibrox but would be free to take his place in the dugout for the Old Firm match at Celtic Park on March 21.
