Falkirk forward Kevin O'Hara has been handed an eight-match ban for "excessive misconduct" by a Scottish FA disciplinary tribunal.

The charge relates to the verbal abuse of Dunfermline's Dean Shiels in a Challenge Cup match on 7 October.

In 2006, former Rangers and Hibernian forward Shiels had an operation to remove his right eye, which was damaged in a childhood accident.

O'Hara, 19, is an academy product and has made 15 first-team appearances.

A Falkirk statement read: "The club take note of the decision made by the Scottish FA Judicial Panel and are in the process of requesting the written reasons.

"No further comment will be made at this time."

Falkirk's Joe McKee has also been served with an SFA notice of complaint for "excessive misconduct" in the same match and will appear before the governing body on 16 November.

Dunfermline's Shiels was sent off in the match on 7 October for a challenge on McKee.

Must've been pretty severe what the boy said to Shiels to warrant such a lengthy ban. I can't find any 'particulars as to what was said and there's no further info in the local paper.

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind!

The punishment does seem harsh.

It's also indicative of how much the libtard philosophy spreading.

There was overwhelming video evidence against Terry.

But this case is certainly reminiscent of the incident involving Celtic's Aleksandar Tonev vs Aberdeen's Shay Logan in that there would appear to be little or no corroborating evidence. Is this another "balance of probabilities" decision?

The video evidence on Terry was inconclusive

IIRC it was easy to lip read what he said.

 

However, I think that dishing out bans for verbals is a bit much, especially when so many physical incidents go unpunished.

Even if it's racist or sectarian bile in your face?

I should have included the word uncorroborated in that post.

 

Mind you, back in the day we adopted the position "sticks and stones may break my bones............................................"
