Friday, 04 Jan 2008
Heart of Midlothian has lost a Claim of Wrongful Dismissal which it had submitted late this afternoon in respect of the sending off of its player Marius Zaliukas in the club’s match against Dundee United on Wednesday.
The player had been sent off for violent conduct towards Dundee United’s Lee Wilkie by referee Alan Freeland.
In accordance with the provisions for Claims of Wrongful Dismissal, the referee is given the opportunity to review the circumstances of the sending off. Alan Freeland has indicated that he is content with his decision to send the player off. The Claim is therefore dismissed.
Zaliukas is automatically suspended for Heart of Midlothian’s home match against Kilmarnock tomorrow. The player has also incurred a fixed suspension of two matches commencing from 16th January.
