Celtic have learned the outcome of their appeal over Yang's red card against Hearts.

The Parkhead club has lost their appeal, meaning the winger will now serve a two-game suspension.

The 21-year-old was initially booked by referee Don Robertson after he was punished for a high boot challenge involving defender Alex Cochrane.

VAR reviewed the incident though, with John Beaton advising his colleague to check the flashpoint at the pitchside monitor for a potential red card.

After consulting with VAR, and looking at the incident again, Robertson upgraded his decision from yellow to red, and Yang was sent off in the early stages of the game.

Now, the SFA has confirmed on its website that Celtic's appeal against the decision of serious foul play has been dismissed.

The tribunal was heard today on Tuesday, March 5. The decision means the original sanction is re-imposed with immediate effect. The £500 fee is forfeited and is to be paid within 30 days. 

A club spokesperson said: “We have received notification that the club's claim has been dismissed.

“Clearly we are surprised and extremely disappointed at this decision.”

Meanwhile, the treatment by Celtic fans towards Liel Abada left the winger with no choice but to leave the club.

That's the claims of his Israeli ally Avi Luzon, who is the chief of Maccabi Petah Tikva - a former club of Abada.

The attacker, 22, is set to join MLS side FC Charlotte in a £10m deal from the Hoops.

The winger is due to move on from the Scottish champions a little over six months after agreeing a new deal until the summer of 2027.

Brendan Rodgers last month revealed that Abada would not be involved in first-team matters going forward, with the player not in the right frame of mind. This is in relation to the ongoing conflict in the Middle East involving his native land Israel and Palestine.

It's said that an element of the Celtic support who have consistently shown their support of Palestine, by waving flags and displaying banners at games, have contributed to Abada's mindset.
