Hearts midfielder Jamie Hamill today received a four-game ban from the Scottish Football Association for his barge on Ross County manager Derek Adams.

Hamill was charged with excessive misconduct by the SFA over the incident at Tynecastle on April 19. He has already served one match of the four-game suspension having been red carded at the time, whilst one has been suspended until the end of next season.

That leaves him to miss only two games for now - Saturday’s season-ending trip to St Mirren plus the first match of the new season in August.

Hamill collided with Adams after scoring Hearts’ first goal in the 2-0 win over Ross County. He received a second yellow card and was ordered off but the SFA later issued him with a notice of complaint for excessive misconduct.
