Football - Lomas facing further sanctions

St Johnstone manager Steve Lomas, currently subject of an eight-match touchline ban, faces further sanctions after being called before a Scottish Football Association disciplinary hearing later this month for kicking a water bottle.


Lomas was handed his current suspension after being sent to the stands during his side's 1-1 draw with Celtic in October and the sanction - a six-match ban, plus the activation of a suspended two-game ban - was imposed last Thursday, a day after he was dismissed against Hibernian.

It is his actions against Hibs which will be under scrutiny after an alleged breach of disciplinary rule 203, specifically "misconduct at a match by failing to behave in a responsible manner as an occupant of the technical area by kicking a water bottle carrier causing water bottles to land in the stand."

The former Northern Ireland midfielder has until Wednesday, December 12, to respond to the notice of complaint, the SFA said in its statement.
