Aberdeen striker Rory Fallon has the severity of his sanction from the weekend's match with Rangers reduced.

The red card the New Zealand international received for an apparent elbow on 'Gers defender Dorin Goian has been downgraded to a yellow and he will now only serve a one-game ban rather than two after the Dons appealed.

"Rory Fallon's red card, sustained late on in Saturday's defeat at the hands of Rangers, has been downgraded to a yellow following the club's appeal to the SFA," reads a statement on Aberdeen's official website.
