Hearts have successfully appealed the booking Kyle Lafferty received for simulation in Sunday’s draw with Dundee.

The Northern Irish striker was contentiously cautioned by referee Kevin Clancy in the first half of the match at Dens Park after going to ground under a challenge from Steven Caulker.

Lafferty was adamant he should have had a penalty and, after reviewing footage, Hearts moved to contest the booking.

A fast-track tribunal was heard at Hampden today and the yellow card has been rescinded.
