Hearts midfielder Laryea Kingston has been banned for the remainder of the season after being found guilty of using 'offensive, insulting and abusive language' towards a referee.

Kingston was sent off by referee Steve Conroy during a match against Aberdeen on March 10.
The midfielder, who has already served an automatic two-game ban, was handed an additional three-match suspension by the Scottish Football Association's disciplinary committee. Meanwhile, Hearts have said they will appeal against the decision the enable their playmaker feature in their remaining three matches to secure their place in the Uefa Cup.
