In Brief: Celtic to appeal Majstorovic red; Players support Killie manager

Celtic to appeal Majstorovic red

Celtic are likely to appeal against the dismissal of Daniel Majstorovic during the league leaders' 1-0 win over Inverness Caledonian Thistle on Saturday.

Majstorovic was shown a straight red by referee Steven McLean for a challenge on Jonny Hayes, but the ICT player said he thought the Swedish defender had got the ball. Celtic's manager, Neil Lennon, said: "I'm going to speak to the club and see if there is grounds for appeal."

Players support Killie manager

Paul Heffernan insists that Kilmarnock's players are 100 per cent behind Kenny Shiels despite assistant Jimmy Nicholl admitting he had advised the manager to tone down criticism of opponents.

Hearts manager Paulo Sergio refused to shake Shiels' hand on Saturday after the 1-1 draw, but Killie striker Heffernan said: "The players are 100 per cent behind what the gaffer is trying to do here. He calls it as he sees it."
