Ross County captain Andrew Davies, who was sent-off for a dreadful stamp on Celtic skipper Scott Brown on Saturday, will not receive any further sanctions for his offence, according to a report.
The Daily Record shockingly reports that Davies will only receive a two match ban for his brutal attack on Brown and that will no doubt upset Hoops fans and manager Brendan Rodgers.
Brown has been a marked man in recent weeks, with the challenge from Davies the third red card incident that the player has been involved with this season.
Thankfully the Hoops captain has managed to avoid injury in all of the incidents, although he was fortunate not to suffer a bad injury after the Davies stamp.
Football Insider verdict
Hoops fans will be livid that Davies is going to receive what amounts to slap on the wrist for his terrible challenge on the Hoops skipper. Brown was fortunate to avoid what could have been a serious injury at the hands of the Ross County captain, and it will be interesting to hear what the Hoops players and management have to say about the incident. As for Brown, he will no doubt dust himself off and get on with the game like he usually does, but privately he won’t be happy at the punishment dished out to Davies should the two match ban prove to be the case. This story will run and run.
