Ross County co-manager Stuart Kettlewell is set to discover today if he is to be handed a touchline ban after being charged by the Scottish FA with aggressively ‘making contact with a match official’.
The alleged incident happened during the January 4 defeat to Morton and is thought to involve fourth official Craig Napier, and not match referee Willie Collum.
Kettlewell was served with two notice of complaints, including one which states: ‘No player or member of Team Staff shall make physical contact with a match official in an aggressive manner during and/or directly after a match’.
The former Staggies midfielder was sent to the stand during the Cappielow match following a flare-up with Morton midfielder Chris Millar, who was booked along with County attacker Michael Gardyne.
Referee Collum also sent-off County captain Marcus Fraser after he challenged the decision to disallow a Ross Stewart equaliser in injury-time.
Kettlewell, whose side lead the Championship by three points over Ayr United, is expected to appear in person at a Hampden hearing today.
