David Templeton has been suspended for two matches after admitting to a charge of violent conduct in Sunday's Edinburgh derby.
The Hearts winger appeared to kick out, connecting with Hibs’ captain James McPake, after being fouled by McPake and tackled by Tim Clancy during the match.
Referee Willie Collum awarded a free kick to Hearts for the challenge on Templeton but did not issue a card to the Hearts player for the apparent retaliation.
As a result he was cited by the SFA's compliance officer and offered the ban.
Templeton, 23, accepted his guilt and will be banned for Hearts' SPL ties against Inverness Caledonian Thistle and Aberdeen.
Speaking after the game, McPake said: “It was a boot from David. It might not have been the nicest of tackles from me and it was rightly a foul but you can’t just boot someone.”
Hearts manager John McGlynn said his player was perhaps lucky not to have been red carded during the game.
He said: “David may have been lucky to stay on but he had taken a bit of treatment. You can’t condone this but he has been provoked with the amount of challenges.”
