Hibernian defender Darnell Johnson is facing a two game ban after a challenge on Celtic left-back Emiliano Izaguirre.

Hibs appealed the ban, and were unsuccessful, BBC Sport reported.

 

Johnson was making his debut in the game against Celtic, kicking off his loan spell from Leicester City.

Hibs fans have been left frustrated, arguing that Celtic players were just as deserving of suspensions.

Celtic players Scott Brown and Jozo Simunovic were named by Hibs supporters as opponents who they felt were no worse than Johnson.

It has been a busy few weeks for the SFA since the winter break and not everybody will be happy.

Celtic fans feel Rangers get a better deal and vice versa, while supporters outside the Old Firm believe the two clubs get unfair advantages, as seen with the Hibs' fans comments above.
