Kilmarnock keeper Daniel Bachmann has Rangers red rescinded

Kilmarnock goalkeeper Daniel Bachmann has had the red card he received against Rangers in the Scottish Cup replay at Ibrox rescinded.
The Austrian stopper was initially sent off for raising an elbow to Glen Kamara. Kamara went down – in a way which initially looked theatrically – with camera angles later suggesting it was the right choice.
But not for the SFA, who’ve accepted Kilmarnock’s appeal with immediate effect. Just as you thought this week in Scottish football couldn’t get any more bonkers. Make your own mind up below.

This week has been dominated by talk of sectarian chanting after the outcries of firstly Kris Boyd and then Steve Clarke. Dave King waded into the latter not long after.
Rangers Managing Director Stewart Robertson also spoke out about “trial by Sportscene” in an interview on the disciplinary process in Scotland.

Rangers had a huge result on the pitch this week

Between all of that, Rangers also absolutely trounced Kilmarnock 5-0 in a top, top display at Ibrox. Alfredo Morelos scored four, much to the delight of fans. Rangers looked hungry. Bachmann was correctly sent packing.
But you can bet that this card being rescinded will be viewed by some as the whistler handing Rangers an advantage.

How does the appeals process actually work in Scotland? Rangers saw an appeal for the Alfredo Morelos incident at Pittodrie thrown out. Was that as bad Bachmann’s elbow on Kamara? I don’t know.

But after all is said and done, it is still Rangers who progress to the next round of the cup.
The Gers will now face Aberdeen at Pittodrie on the 3rd of March in what promises to be a great cup tie.
Rangers were hoping to take over 20% of Pittodrie but they have had their requested ticket allocation turned down by Aberdeen.
