It was announced yesterday that Celtic winger Aleksandar Tonev had been giving a seven match ban after it was decided that he had breached the SFA’s disciplinary rule 202 after being found guilty of racially abusing Aberdeen’s Shay Logan during the hoops win over the Dons on the 13th of September at Celtic Park.
A Celtic spokesman said: “This was a very unfortunate case, but the Club has accepted Aleksandar’s explanation that he did not say the words that were alleged to have been said and that he is not a racist.
“We are, therefore, very disappointed by the outcome today and can confirm that Aleksandar will be appealing this decision.”
These recent events are set to add extra spice to Celtic’s trip to Pittodrie Stadium to face Aberdeen on the 9th of November.
