Steven Naismith injury newsCraig Brown and Paolo Sergio looks certain to be in trouble with the SFA after criticising referees at yesterdays matches.

The Aberdeen boss was critical of three key decisions from eagle-eyes Willie Collum in the defeat from Rangers while Sergio was ordered to the stand by Alan Muir for banging his hand against his dug out as Hearts lost 1-0 at home to Kilmarnock!

The SFA seem certain to act on the criticism of referees with memories of last season’s  referee strike still fresh in the mind.

Dealing with Rob Milsom’s injury from Steven Naismith Brown said: “The injury to Naismith was self-inflicted, sadly. Milsom has a terrible injury. There is a gash right down his shin, through the shin-guard.”

Brown was also angry about the red card for Rory Fallon claiming: “There’s no way that was a deliberate elbow. We may appeal. Goian didn’t have a mark on him and would be able to go to a wedding right now without needing any make-up.”

The Romanian defender was also involved in a first-half penalty appeal from the Dons after challenging Darren Mackie.

And Brown said: “Darren has told me he was pushed by Goian. He was about to shoot so why would he go down?”

At Tynecastle Sergio was ordered to the stand and faces an automatic suspension as well as being asked to explain his comments suggesting that referees should undergo lie detector tests.
