Rangers defender Jon Flanagan faces a two-match ban after being charged with elbowing Celtic captain Scott Brown in Sunday’s Old Firm derby.
The former England full-back was booked after the incident during the Ibrox side’s 2-0 win.
However, the 26-year-old has now been served with a notice of complaint after a three-man panel unanimously decided it was a red-card offence.
Flanagan faces a hearing at Hampden on Thursday.
If found guilty, he would miss this weekend’s game at Kilmarnock and the first league match of next term.
In the build-up to the derby, Celtic manager Neil Lennon said Rangers “have a huge disciplinary problem” and that Steven Gerrard’s players targeted Brown in the previous Old Firm game.
