Raith Rovers player Iain Davidson has been banned for four games following a clash with Inverness Caledonian Thistle’s Nikolay Todorov.

Davidson was charged with ‘excessive misconduct’ following the game in March after he was shown two red-cards for offences against Todorov.

The 37-year-old, who grabbed Inverness captain Sean Walsh by the throat in the same incident, fouled the Bulgarian before using discriminatory language towards him.

As well as the ban Davidson will also have to complete a FIFA e-learning course before he will be allowed to play again.

A statement released by Raith Rovers on Thursday said: “The outcome of todays SFA Disciplinary Hearing for Rovers player Iain Davidson has been confirmed.

“The Rovers player will have to serve a 4 match suspension (with 2 of those suspended), and will
also have to complete a FIFA e-learning course before playing again.

“The club has accepted the decision of the panel in full.”

Todorov had earlier had a counter claim against him dismissed by a SFA panel.
