Former Rangers starlet banned by SFA after toilet roll incident

Former Rangers starlet and current Ayr United number one Aidan McAdams has been banned by the SFA for throwing toilet roll back at Kilmarnock fans during the Ayrshire derby in October.

McAdams spent several years in the Rangers Academy after a stint in Celtic’s youth setup.

During his time with the Gers he had loan spells at Annan Athletic, Edinburgh City and Portadown.

However, he wasn’t able to force his way into the first-team squad at Ibrox and was released at the end of the 2019/20 campaign.

After a season at Greenock Morton, the 22-year-old joined Ayr in the summer and has started their last seven Championship fixtures.

However, he will have to sit out of The Honest Men’s trip to his old club Morton on Saturday and their home fixture against Hamilton Accies next weekend after being handed a two-match ban by the SFA.

McAdams was found guilty of a breach of rule 77 by the authorities relating to an incident in the closing stages of an Ayrshire derby defeat to Kilmarnock on 26 October [Scottish FA].

After Oli Shaw scored a late winner from the penalty spot, McAdams sent a toilet roll that had been thrown onto the pitch back into the away end.

‘Aidan admitted throwing a toilet roll in frustration after smoke devices were thrown onto the pitch following a last minute penalty had been scored by Kilmarnock,’ reads a section of Ayr’s statement on the ban.

‘The Club are disappointed at the outcome, but have accepted it and will move on.’

Promising Rangers Academy player James Maxwell is currently on loan at Ayr and scored as they narrowly avoided a Scottish Cup upset last weekend.
