St Johnstone have fined Richard Foster and Danny Swanson four weeks' wages for fighting with one another on the pitch.
The Scottish Premiership club opened an investigation into the incident and announced the results on Friday.
A statement read: "Richard Foster and Danny Swanson fully accept that they are ambassadors for the club and role models for young fans everywhere.
"They accept that their conduct fell far below that which is required of them as professional football players with St. Johnstone FC and that they brought the club into disrepute.
"The sanctions imposed upon them - a fine of four weeks' wages - were the most severe, short of summary dismissal.
"The players have accepted the sanctions without question and they wish to apologise unreservedly to the supporters of the club for their behaviour.

"Both players have expressed a desire for a proportion of the fines to be utilised for free bus travel for supporters to the remaining away matches this season and the club is in full agreement with this request.
"The players will now return to training and playing duties where they can channel their energies into contributing to the continued success of the club."
