RANGERS have lost an appeal against the red card show to Ryan Jack in Sunday’s match against Aberdeen.

The SFA rejected the Ibrox side’s bid to quash the midfielder’s dismissal after a challenge with Dons striker Stevie May.

Although Jack looked to have won the ball first, Willie Collum went straight for his red card after the former Aberdeen star connected with the ankle of the oncoming May.

It’s the fourth time the 25-year-old has been shown a red card this season, although two of them were successfully overturned after appeals by his club.

Jack will serve a three-match ban, missing this weekend’s match against Ross County as well as clashes with Hibs and St Johnstone.
