The Scottish Professional Football League are awaiting the match delegate's report from Sunday's game between Hibernian and Rangers at Easter Road, where an offensive banner was displayed in the home end aimed at Rangers supporters.
Rangers have not commented on the incident, while Hibernian are yet to complete their regular post-match debrief operation, and thus have made no statement on the banner, which was removed by stewards shortly after being unfurled.
The match, in the final round of Scottish Premiership fixtures this season, ended in a 5-5 draw between the two sides.
Hibs went 3-0 up in the opening 22 minutes after goals from Florian Kamberi, Scott Allan and Jamie Maclaren.
However, strikes from James Tavernier, Jordan Rossiter and Bruno Alves, before second-half goals from Jason Holt and Josh Windass saw the visitors race into a 5-3 lead.
But Maclaren then scored twice, including a stoppage-time equaliser, to bag his hat-trick and to ensure a point for the home side.
Hibernian manager Neil Lennon said after the match that his sending off for celebrating the late equalising goal was "worth it", due to the alleged sectarian abuse he claimed he had received from the away support during the game.
