CELTIC are planning to appeal an SFA charge brought against striker Albian Ajeti for simulation during their win against Kilmarnock on Tuesday night.

Ajeti was hit with a retrospective two-game ban after going down under the challenge of Killie 'keeper Colin Doyle to win a penalty at Rugby Park, which Odsonne Edouard converted to put Celtic 2-0 up on the night. They went on to record a comfortable 4-0 victory.

HeraldSport understands that Celtic will contest the charge though, which will now go to a fast-track hearing scheduled for February 8th.

A three-man panel of former Grade One referees reviewed the incident, and cited Ajeti under the rule stating: "No player shall cause a match official to make an incorrect decision and/or support an error of judgment on the part of a match official by an act of simulation which results in that player’s team obtaining a Substantial Advantage."

Kilmarnock caretaker manager James Fowler was aggrieved at the penalty award after the match, saying: “I’ve seen some of the goals back and certainly when you look at their second, I don’t think it’s a penalty.

“Speaking to the fourth official, he said the referee and the linesman were having a conversation and there was a delay in the award, so that tells its own story."

Meanwhile, Celtic captain Scott Brown will not face any disciplinary action after apparently catching Kilmarnock midfielder Aaron Tshibola with a flailing arm as the pair contested a throw-in.
