Multiple outlets, including the Daily Record, reported on Tuesday afternoon, that Kilmarnock’s Alan Power will face no retrospective action for his challenge on Ryan Jack.
It’s fair to say that these kinds of decisions don’t seem to be going Rangers’s way at the moment.
Last Friday, Alfredo Morelos had an appeal against his red card dismissed. That was his third dismissal against Aberdeen this season, but many fans weren’t convinced referee, Bobby Madden, had made the right call.
Earlier that afternoon, Alan McGregor, learned that he faced a two-match ban.
The goalkeeper caught Dons midfielder Lewis Ferguson’s shin in the penalty area, but this time, Madden ruled it a fair challenge.
SFA compliance officer, Clare Whyte, disagreed, and subsequently cited the 37-year-old.
Rangers appealed that decision and the case will reportedly be heard on Wednesday.
On Saturday, when Power caught Rangers midfielder Jack flush in the face with a high boot, it looked for all money like a red card.
While there may or may not have been malice, it was undoubtedly reckless and dangerous, but only received a yellow card.
However, today’s reports suggest that it was deemed unworthy of any further sanctions.
That means Power will be free to play against Rangers in the replay, next Wednesday.
It’s fair to say some fans weren’t happy about that.
Clearly, consistency is still elusive for the SFA.

One rule for a certain club another rule for others….it certainly looks that way in the SFA compliance office. There's a rotten smell about the SFA .
