Celtic's Wilson cops two-match ban

Celtic defender Kelvin Wilson has been banned for two matches by the Scottish Football Association.

The 27-year old centre-back was charged with violent conduct by the SFA's compliance offer Vincent Lunny following his elbow on Dundee's John Baird on Boxing Day and has been found guilty, prompting a two-match suspension.

Celtic boss Neil Lennon admits it is a disappointing decision considering Baird came out and made it known that the contact was accidental.

"Clearly we are very disappointed with today's decision and unfortunately there is no right of appeal," he said.

"We find it disappointing that Kelvin has been found guilty of violent conduct, particularly when the other player has stated it was an accidental incident."
