Ryan Jack has lost his appeal against the red card he received in Rangers' 2-1 win over Aberdeen on Sunday.
The Gers midfielder was dismissed at Pittodrie following an incident with Stevie May in which he played the ball first but connected with the Aberdeen player with his passing foot, with referee Willie Collum showing Jack a straight red card.
It was the fourth time this season that the 25-year-old had been dismissed following red cards at home to Hibernian and Kilmarnock, as well as away at Hamilton.
However, Jack was successful with appeals for his dismissals against Hibs and Kilmarnock, with those red cards being rescinded by Scottish Football Association tribunals.
Jack has not been successful on this occasion, with the SFA panel upholding his red card, meaning he will be banned for three fixtures.
The midfielder will serve an immediate two-match ban for the incident against Aberdeen on December 3, meaning he sits out the games against Ross County and Hibernian.
His previous dismissal earlier in the season means an additional match ban will be served but this only kicks in 14 days after the sending off.
That means he will be available for Rangers' game against St. Johnstone on December 16 but will then be suspended for the trip to Kilmarnock on December 23.
Rangers were leading 1-0 when Jack was sent off last weekend but doubled their advantage shortly afterwards, eventually going on to win the game 2-1.
