St Johnstone manager Steve Lomas has been handed an eight-match touchline ban, after being sent to the stand during St Johnstone's 1-1 draw against Celtic last month.

Lomas was also sent to the stand towards the end of his side's 1-0 defeat by Hibernian on Wednesday night, which will incur another punishment at a later date.

A statement on the Perth club's official website read: "The SFA have this afternoon handed Steve Lomas an eight-match touchline suspension following his dismissal from the dugout in the match against Celtic on November 11 for foul and abusive language towards a match official.

"This ban consists of six games for the offence committed at Celtic Park plus the suspended two-game ban which was already hanging over him following the game against Ross County in Dingwall in September.''
