The SFA will be under huge pressure to take action domestically on Ryan Kent as the hot head of a midfielder had gotten himself a straight red in Sevco’s 2-0 win over Lyon in France.
Now, rules are rules and the SFA must issue Kent with at the very least a one match ban that will see Kent miss Sevco’s first game of the season against Aberdeen.
Late on in the first half the former Liverpool starlet was given a straight red card for raising his hands to an opponent.
A year ago Jozo Simunovic was sent off in a friendly match against St Gallen, picking up on it the SFA suspended the Celtic defender for the opening SPFL fixtures against St Johnstone and Motherwell.
Last year The Sun reported:
Referee Fedayi San reported the dismissal to the Swiss FA who have since informed the SFA that Simunovic was given his marching orders for serious foul play.
He is now suspended for Celtic’s opener at home to St Johnstone and the Scottish champions’ second league outing of the season away at Motherwell.
Over the past few years, Sevco have gotten away with a vast amount of decisions due to Referees in Scotland having no balls and either afraid to make the correct call or refuse to as they support the newco club.
Its only fair that the same rules apply to Kent as they did Simunovic and the winger misses the first game of the Scottish season.
