Damion Stewart’ sappeal against a ludicrous red card decision on Saturday against Norwich City at Carrow Road has today been rejected by the Football Association.

It seemed at the time that Stewart had made little to no contact with Ched Evans, and it was infact goalkeeper Lee Camp who made the majority of impact on the on-loan striker. Rangers of course went on to lose the game 3-0, which secured the Canaries` safety.

Nevertheless the ban has today been upheld by the Football Association leaving Damion Stewart not only banned for Sunday`s encounter against West Bromwich Albion, but also the first fixture of next season.

More worryingly however with Fitz Hall remaining doubtful owing to a groin injury, it appears that the man who struggled so evidently against West Brom at the Hawthornes will take his place at centre half, Zesh Rehman.

  • I don’t understand how they looked at that decision and still rejected the appeal. I’ve only had the chance of seeing it once in replay and once live, and there was minimal contact if any.

  • Clearly the FA has stood up to its alternative name today – I also saw a brief shot of the incident – no way was it Stewart who should’ve walked. What ARE the FA doing? Still, we should be grateful it’s only 2 games – and who knows who’ll be playing in central defence for us next season!!!!!

  • Agree, was a strange decision. The referee’s I have seen this season, as a whole, have made some very strange decisions.

  • The decision was bad enough, ok referee’s can make mistakes, he put his thumbs up to the linesman and fair enough got the wrong guy, but the numbskull of a linesman never entertained the idea of correcting him! It’s a nonsense, I think they wanted to give Camp a ban, but that would have been worse. Total shambles.

  • Do we think thay run the game fairly, no we don’t.
    from an outsiders viewpoint, you’ve been done guys.
