Rangers winger Ryan Kent facing ban after punching Scott Brown

Rangers winger Ryan Kent is facing a lengthy ban after escaping a booking for punching Scott Brown during Sunday's feisty Old Firm derby.

The on-loan Liverpool attacker scored Rangers' equaliser in a match which they eventually lost 2-1, but his afternoon will be remembered for the punch he threw at Scott Brown late in the game.

Exactly what prompted him to punch the Celtic captain, aside from Brown just being Brown, is as yet unknown, but Kent approached the Scot angrily, before punching him in the face.

Brown, though unhurt, went down like a sack of spuds and was obviously looking to get the referee to do something.

Though Kent wasn't booked for what he did, he will likely face a ban when officials review the match. If he is banned for the punch it will mean that three Rangers players will be suspended exclusively for incidents involving Brown.

Scottish Police Federation deputy chairman David Hamilton described the players' behavior in Sunday's fiery Old Firm game as "unacceptable" while Scottish football was in a "crisis".
