were dismissive of the after a Not Proven charge was returned against Albian Ajeti’s simulation charge.

It seems that hours have been spent on a case that has no evidence but with a spate of issues involving players at it looks like a strange case of being seen to act even handed with the two clubs.

Not Proven is a unique Scottish Legal outcome that has come in for criticism down the years, giving the courts the ability to effectively opt out of making a decision.

Ajeti’s charge followed a televised match at with the penalty reviewed in great detail by Sports and BBC Scotland. Most pundits came to the conclusion that there was contact from Colin Doyle leading to the view that they’d ‘seen them given’.

Two days after the match the SFA came up with the simulation charge which instantly rejected, contact had been proven so although it may be soft to some fans it certainly wasn’t a case of simulation.

Ajeti is now clear to play against St Mirren tomorrow night but over the last week his reputation has been tarnished with referees likely to be more hesitant any time that he is fouled, inside or outside the penalty box.
