Kemar Roofe has been offered a two match SFA ban for his violent stamp on Murray Davidson on Wednesday night.
Referee David Munro had a clear view of the incident but decided only to award a yellow card for the incident in the 20th minute of the match.
With 11 men on the pitch the Ibrox side went on to enjoy another 1-0 win, so far this season no red cards have been issued to any of Steven Gerrard’s players who have also avoided giving away any penalties.

This is the third time in two months that retrospective suspensions have been handed out to Ibrox players which is believed to be a new World Record!
In December Steven McLean showed a yellow card to Alfredo Morelos for a forearm smash on Dundee United’s Mark Connolly. The two match suspension was accepted by the Ibrox company.
Last week Morelos again escaped when he stamped on Ryan Porteous of Hibs. Referee Kevin Clancy decided that it was a tangle of legs but the Ibrox side again accepted the two match retrospective suspension after the Colombian had scored the only goal of the game.
Clancy, McLean and Munro have escaped punishment for failing to do their job.
