Hibernian defender Darnell Johnson has been handed a two-match ban for serious foul play.

Johnson was originally booked for his challenge on Celtic's Emilio Izaguirre during Hibs' game with the Scottish champions last Wednesday, but was handed a notice of complaint by the Scottish Football Association.

The two-match ban was confirmed at a SFA disciplinary hearing on Thursday at Hampden Park.

The 20-year-old, making his debut on loan at Hibs from Leicester, put in a heavy challenge on Hoops full-back Emilio Izaguirre, who had to be stretchered off with an ankle injury.

The SFA confirmed that no action will be taken against Kilmarnock's Alan Power for his challenge on Rangers midfielder Ryan Jack.
