Peterhead striker Andy Rodgers has been hit by a two-game ban after the SFA took issue with recent comments he made on Twitter.
Following Peterhead’s ill-tempered 3-0 away defeat against Dunfermline in the Scottish League One a few Saturdays ago, Rodgers took to Twitter to first accuse Dunfermline’s Josh Falkingham of cheating during the game which saw the visitors end the match with just eight players left on the pitch.
Rodgers, whose Twitter account has since been closed, then compounded the matter by referring to the people of Dunfermline as “mutants” and “absolute creatures”.
He will now miss Peterhead’s league clash with Airdire on Saturday as a result, though the SFA have suspended the second game of his ban until the end of the season.
