Steven Gerrard: Rangers manager ‘offered’ one-match touchline ban and Celtic captain Scott Brown also charged by Scottish FA
Gerrard has been accused of misconduct, believed to be comments made to referee Bobby Madden following the match, and has been given a fixed offer of a one-match suspension and has until Friday to respond.
Celtic captain Scott Brown has also been charged for ‘not acting in the best interests of association football’.
Brown was the key antagonist during Sunday’s fiery Old Firm derby, which Celtic won 2-1.
He was involved in a fracas with Alfredo Morelos, who subsequently was sent off for elbowing the Celtic man.
Ryan Kent raised his hand at Brown later in the match. Kent has been offered a two-match ban for the incident.
