Darcheville given three-match ban

Rangers striker Jean-Claude Darcheville
Darcheville was sent off for stamping
Rangers' Jean-Claude Darcheville has been handed a three-match European ban following his red card against Lyon.

The French striker will miss both legs of the Uefa Cup clash against Panathinaikos next month.

And his also out of the first leg of the tie against Braga or Werder Bremen should Rangers reach the last 16.

Rangers have the right to appeal but are waiting to receive the full report on the decision from Uefa before they choose whether to act.

Darcheville was sent off late in the 3-0 defeat at Ibrox in December that ended the Ibrox club's Champions League campaign.

The 32-year-old stamped on Kim Kallstrom in retaliation not long after missing an open goal that would have brought Rangers level as they sought a point to go through.

Rangers have the right to appeal but are waiting to receive the full report on the decision from UEFA before they choose whether to act.

After the game, he said: "I always take responsibility for myself, but the referee got it wrong.

"Maybe it was a yellow card. I was very surprised when I saw the red card."

Kallstrom had also played down the "little stamp", which caused him no damage.

"All footballers are there to play in front of these fantastic crowds and there is a lot of emotion and I hope he will not get a long suspension because it was just frustration," he said.
