The Rangers goalkeeper was under the scrutiny of compliance officer, Clare Whyte, after a poor challenge on Aberdeen’s Lewis Ferguson on Wednesday night.
The veteran came out to collect an attempted through ball, but with his momentum carrying him along the turf, he left his leg in. His studs caught the midfielder flush on the shin.
Alternative camera angles seemed to show referee Bobby Madden looking at the incident, but nothing was given at the time.
However, the report tells that the keeper will still be available for Saturday’s Scottish Cup tie.
Rangers appealed the decision. Therefore, his case will be deferred to a hearing on Tuesday.
McGregor’s case wasn’t the only one under scrutiny today, though.
Celtic defender Jozo Simunovic was also at risk of a ban.
Yet, his seemingly blatant elbow on Hibernian’s Oli Shaw also on Wednesday night, went completely unpunished.
It’s fair to say some fans on Twitter were not happy.
McGregor’s challenge was a poor one, but surely Simunovic should have been similarly punished? Some fans also pointed to challenges from Scott Brown and accused the body of a lack of consistency.
