The Scottish Football Association will take no action against the Rangers midfielder, Paul Gascoigne, after television viewers saw him aim an elbow at Pierre van Hooijdonk, the Celtic striker.

The incident happened as John Hughes scored Celtic's equaliser, with three minutes remaining, in the Old Firm match at Ibrox on Sunday. While those watching television were given a close-up of the incident, the match referee, Jim McCluskey, did not see it.

The SFA, having received the referee supervisor's report which contains no word of the incident, said it can take no action. Video evidence will not be used by the SFA until next season.
