Motherwell manager Stephen Robinson hope to avoid Celtic cup final ban ahead of Scottish FA hearing



Motherwell manager Stephen Robinson will bid to avoid a Betfred Cup final touchline ban when he appears before the Scottish FA on Thursday.

The Northern Irishman is expected to attend the morning’s hearing in person after being cited for an alleged breach of Disciplinary Rule 202 – ‘No member of team staff shall commit Misconduct at a match’.

Robinson and then Rangers manager Pedro Caixinha were both sent to the stand after clashing during last month’s stormy Betfred Cup semi-final.

Caixinha, who was sacked last Thursday, accepted a one-match ban for his part in the incident but Robinson is set to discover his fate today.

The Steelmen travel to Ross County and Aberdeen before they lock horns with holders Celtic in the November 26 showdown and Robinson is desperate to lead his team out at Hampden.
