Celtic's Wanyama has red card overturned

Victor Wanyama is free to play in this weekend's Scottish Cup semi-final for Celtic.

The Kenyan midfielder was questionably sent off for a foul in the Hoops' 1-1 draw with St Mirren on March 31 with the Glasgow club appealing the likely ban.

The club had to wait until Thursday night to find out if their appeal had been successful and they were thrilled with the result after a Scottish Football Association disciplinary tribunal downgraded it to a yellow card for unsporting behaviour.

Wanyama, who has been one of Celtic's top few players this season, will now take his place in Neil Lennon's line-up for Sunday's semi-final meeting with Dundee United .
