The Dutchman did not contest the charge brought by the Compliance Officer by yesterday's 3pm deadline. Now Boerrigter must wait to see if Hoops boss Ronny Deila takes any action against him for the simulation, which saw the champions awarded a penalty in their 3-0 win against St Johnstone last week.

Saints skipper Dave Mackay has appealed the red card he was shown in the same incident.
