Two-game ban for striker

Dundee United striker Nadir Ciftci has received a two-game suspension for "excessive misconduct".

The incident happened during the Tangerines' Scottish League Cup exit to Inverness Caledonian Thistle in October.

His offence was described as "excessive misconduct at a match by placing an open hand into the lower area of the Assistant Referee's throat."

Ciftci had originally been cited for "seizing hold" of assistant Gavin Harris "by the throat".

One game of his suspension will be served immediately while the second is "suspended until the end of season 2013/14, to take effect in the event of a breach of Disciplinary Rule 201 during that period".

The 21-year-old had been dismissed following a mass brawl but his red card was later reduced to yellow after a successful claim of wrongful dismissal for violent conduct.
