Goodwin handed eight match ban after Porteous 'blatant cheating' claims

Aberdeen manager Jim Goodwin has been issued with an eight-game ban after accusing Hibernian's Ryan Porteous of "blatant cheating".

He made the comments after the Easter Road defender went down in the box during a match between the sides and was awarded a penalty by referee David Dickinson, while Dons defender Liam Scales was sent off.

Aberdeen went on to lose the match 3-1 which then resulted in Goodwin's outburst that has landed him an eight-match ban from the SFA, of which two games are suspended until the end of the season.

Goodwin will now miss games against Dundee United, Hearts, Partick Thistle, Motherwell, Rangers and Hibernian.

At the time Hibernian chiefs contacted their Pittodrie counterparts after the match to express their anger at Goodwin's comments.
