Rangers defender Bilel Mohsni has accepted a two-match ban for lashing out at Hibs’ Liam Fontaine – but team-mate Kris Boyd has vowed to fight a separate charge aimed at him.

Both players were issued with notices of complaints by new Scottish Football Association compliance officer Tony McGlennan following off-the-ball incidents in Monday night’s 3-1 defeat to the Capital side at Ibrox.

They were each accused of “violent conduct” but while Mohsni has accepted his charge, Boyd will now argue his case before a Hampden hearing next Thursday.

Boyd is accused of trying to butt Jordan Foster after the pair went head-to-head in the Hibs box late in the game.
