Dundee United’s Calum Butcher could face retrospective punishment as the Scottish FA reviews a potential red card challenge on Celtic’s David Turnbull.
Butcher received a yellow card from referee Don Robertson for the foul during the match at Tannadice on Sunday, which United lost 3-0.
The incident is being reviewed and if three former referees are in agreement that the challenge instead merited a red card, the SFA’s compliance officer will issue the player with a notice of complaint.
That notice of complaint would come with the fixed offer of a ban, or Butcher and United could decide to argue their case at a disciplinary hearing.
Butcher came off the bench in the 52nd minute, making his return after a previous two-match ban. He was booked nine minutes later.
The player will learn by 3pm on Tuesday if he is to face further action.
