Aleksandar Tonev’s appeal hearing has been adjourned after hearing the necessary evidence this evening.
Tonev was found guilty of racially abusing Aberdeen defender Shay Logan when the teams met in September and the Bulgarian was handed a seven game ban.
However Celtic stood by the winger and appealed the decision.
The SFA have confirmed that they will announce their verdict on the appeal within the next two weeks.
Celtic have always maintained their player is innocent and this week manager Ronny Deila revealed the club would consider taking the appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport if the appeal is unsuccessful.
Speaking before this evening’s hearing, Deila said: “We have to be sure about the things that have actually been said. If not, then it’s a very hard penalty.”
