The Scottish Football Association have dismissed misconduct charges brought against Inverness Caledonian Thistle forward Nikolay Todorov.

Todorov was charged with committing ‘excessive misconduct’ during a match against Raith Rovers in March following an incident involving Iain Davidson.

Rovers midfielder Davidson was sent off for a late challenge on Todorov before being shown a second red for alleged discriminatory remarks towards the same player.

In a statement released on Thursday, Inverness Caledonian Thistle said they were ‘delighted’ with the decision reached by the panel.

They said: “When Nikolay was first charged in April, the club committed to robustly defend Nikolay from the allegation as we believed Nikolay’s conduct on the 16th March was entirely exemplary despite the extreme provocation, racist abuse and violence he was subjected to. “

The club also thanked lawyer Aamer Anwar, who represented Todorov at the tribunal.

Anwar also welcomed the result.
