Inverness manager Terry Butcher will serve a one-match touchline ban after accepting a Scottish FA charge for criticising a referee.
Butcher was served with a Notice of Complaint after comments he made about referee George Salmond following Inverness’ 1-1 draw with Aberdeen in September.
Butcher was incensed by the performance of Salmond, suggesting that his side should have been awarded a second penalty and should not have had Owain Tudor Jones sent off in the September 15 match.
In a post-match interview the Inverness manager said: "We should’ve won the game and it was because of the referee we didn’t. He should’ve given a penalty and sent the boy off.
"Sending off Jones was very harsh as well. It was a yellow, never a red. If that was the case in my day I would have been done for assault. I would have been in prison.
"There is never any consistency with these guys. It is a disgrace. They are in change of my future, my job, and they are letting us down. I want to see refs accountable if they make a mistake."
Scottish FA compliance officer Vincent Lunny decided there was a case to answer relating to rules on comments about match officials. Butcher decided not to contest the complaint and will now watch his side’s SPL match against Ross County from the stand.
