Hibs striker Jason Cummings has been issued with a notice of complaint by the Scottish FA’s compliance officer for allegedly making an offensive gesture after scoring in Saturday’s Edinburgh derby.

Cummings was charged under disciplinary Rule 200 - “That in the above match you made an offensive gesture” and has been offered a one-match ban which would rule him out of this weekend’s home clash with Falkirk.

The 19-year-old was booked for his celebrations after grabbing the opening goal in the 1-1 draw at Tynecastle and could now be punished further.

Hibs have until tomorrow afternoon to respond, with the principal hearing the following day.

St Johnstone forward James McFadden, meanwhile, has been offered a two-match ban for a gesture allegedly made to visiting fans after being sent off five minutes from the end of Saints’ 1-0 defeat at home to Hamilton on Sunday.
