Hibernian boss John Hughes will serve a six-match touchline ban after being sent to the stands during the 5-1 thrashing at St Johnstone.

The SFA take into account managers' conduct over the previous two seasons when issuing touchline bans and Hughes had two run-ins with officials during that period while in charge at Falkirk.

The SFA also confirmed striker Colin Nish will serve a three-match ban for his sending-off in the same game after kicking out at Saints defender Michael Duberry.
