Magennis banned for head-butting Kilmarnock team-mate

Josh Magennis' head-butt on team-mate Jamie Hamill has landed the Kilmarnock man a two-match ban.

Josh Magennis has been hit with a two-match ban from the Scottish Football Assocation (SFA) for head-butting Kilmarnock team-mate Jamie Hamill.

The pair came head-to-head after Magennis conceding a free-kick during Kilmarnock's 4-1 victory over Partick Thistle on Saturday, a match that ensured Gary Locke's men would avoid the Scottish Premiership relegation play-off spot.

The SFA has taken a dim view of the incident and has subsequently decided to sanction the Northern Ireland international.

Magennis has until Wednesday to accept his punishment or to appeal the suspension.
