The SPL have the power to punish Motherwell over the alleged incident and a spokesman said: "We will wait to see, first and foremost, what our match delegate says about any situation relating to the crowd.

"If there was any major incidents, they would report that.

"They are effectively our eyes and ears at the ground."

The match delegate's report was expected to be received today or tomorrow.

The SPL spokesman added: "If there are any incidents of note which merit further explanation, we'll write to the clubs involved and ask them for some further details."
