STEVEN GERRARD has been slapped with a touchline ban for his comments after Celtic’s 2-1 win over Rangers.

Both Old Firm clubs have been also charged for failing to control their players and Hoops skipper Scott Brown faces a potential suspension.

Steven Gerrard has been accused of misconduct by the Scottish FA

Gerrard has been accused of misconduct by the Scottish FA for his comments made to referee Bobby Madden after the final whistle.

The former England and Liverpool midfielder has until Friday to respond to the charge.

As it stands, he will absent from the dugout when his team take on Motherwell on Sunday at Fir Park.

Brown has been handed a notice of complaint for not acting in the best interests of Association Football.

He appeared to provoke Alfredo Morelos before the Rangers forward was sent off for elbowing him in the first half.

Morelos has since been hit with a four-match ban for his actions during the derby clash.

And Gerrard is expected to fine the 22-year-old a week’s wages after he received his fifth red card of the season.

The Hoops moved 13 points clear at the top of the Scottish Premiership after the explosive win on Sunday.


After the match, Gerrard said: “We’ve hurt ourselves badly this season with a lack of discipline.

“I’ve given my players the benefit of the doubt on too many occasions. Morelos has asked for me a chat, and that will be picked up.”

But the Gers bounced back with a 3-0 win over Hearts on Wednesday to move them clear of third-placed Kilmarnock.
