INVERNESS Caledonian Thistle have said it is disappointed that its appeal against Max Anderson being red carded in the match against Partick Thistle has been rejected.

The on loan midfielder from Dundee will now serve a two-match ban after the club's appeal against his sending off last Saturday was rejected by the SFA.

Anderson was sent off for an alleged dangerous high boot on Luke McBeth which resulted in referee Grant Irvine giving the player a straight red card in the 3-3 draw at the Caledonian Stadium.

Anderson will now miss Saturday's match at Arbroath as well next Tuesday's game against Dunfermline Athletic at the Caledonian Stadium.

Inverness Caledonian Thistle released a statement to the decision, saying it was disappointed with the outcome.

They said: "The club can confirm that we have lost our appeal against the red card we believe was incorrectly given against Max Anderson on Saturday.

Having repeatedly reviewed the footage and clearly seeing that there was no contact with the Partick Thistle player who needed no treatment at all for the reported "studs to the face", we are disappointed by this Fast Track Panel decision but not surprised.

"The two-game ban we were appealing against will now be served by Max.

"While Max won’t be on the pitch on Saturday, we hope as many Caley Jags as can make it, will be there to support Duncan and the team."
