Seven-game racism ban for Celtic's Tonev

Celtic's Aleksandar Tonev given seven-game ban for racist abuse

Celtic winger Aleksandar Tonev has been banned for seven matches for racially abusing Aberdeen defender Shay Logan.
The 24-year-old was charged following an incident with Englishman Logan during a Scottish Premiership match in September.
The Bulgaria international is on loan from Premier League side Aston Villa.
Celtic say they will appeal against the punishment, saying the Bulgarian is "not a racist" and the club "absolutely abhors racism of any kind".
Tonev joined the Scottish champions in August and has featured in eight matches, making just three starts.
