Partick Thistle will have to wait until today to learn if two of their players have been successful in appeals against suspension.

The Scottish Football Association's referee disciplinary committee yesterday investigated the situation of Rod McDonald and Steve Pittman following incidents in a Premier Division match against Rangers. The referee Jim McGilvray, who has since resigned, cautioned McDonald at the interval for crossing himself as he left the pitch.

McDonald received a further booking during the game and was sent off, but is appealing against the first yellow card. Pittman, who was a spectator, was given a red card three times for his comments to the referee.

The Dunfermline assistant manager, Dick Campbell, has been banned from the dug-out until the end of the season after comments made to the referee in a match against Airdrie.

Clydebank and the West of Scotland rugby club are involved in talks which could lead to them both moving to a new stadium in Glasgow.
