HAMILTON Ioannis Skondras is facing a lengthy SFA ban after being charged with excessive misconduct following an apparent punch during Saturday’s explosive clash with Ross County.

The Greek has been served with a notice of complaint from SFA compliance officer Tony McGlennan for allegedly breaching disciplinary rule 202 and will appear before a judicial panel on January 11.

A range of sanctions are open to the governing body, with up to a 16-match suspension available.

Both clubs have also been served with notices of complaint following the melee that marred the end of Accies’ 3-2 victory at New Douglas Park.

Accies were warned as to their conduct only earlier this month following a touchline altercation in their 1-1 draw with Hearts, and could find themselves in hot water for a repeat so soon after that censure.

The clubs, who, like Skondras, have until December 28 to respond, ahead of the January 11 hearing, could be fined up to £10,000.

Skondras was sent-off at the time by referee Gavin Duncan, who was taking charge of his first Premiership match but can also be disciplined retrospectively.

The former PAOK defender was seen to man-handle Duncan during the brawl and the 27-year-old was subsequently accused by County midfielder Christopher Routis of punching him as players from both teams got involved.

Both clubs have been accused of breaching disciplinary rule 204, which governs incidents ‘where three or more players and/or members of team staff from one team are involved in a confrontation with opposing players and/or members of team staff of the opposing team during and/or directly after a match.”

Hamilton, meanwhile have agreed new contracts wity defender Alex Gogic and midfielder Dougie Imrie.

Former Cyprus under-21 international Gogic, 23, has extended his agreement for another two-and-a-half years, while veteran Imrie has signed a fresh 18-month deal.

Accies boss Martin Canning landed Gogic on a free transfer from Swansea back in February before extending his initial deal until the end of this season.

Now the full-back - who has played 16 appearances times this term - has penned another new contract which ties him to the SuperSeal Stadium until the summer of 2020.

Imrie, who has been an ever-present for Accies this season, will remain at the Lanarkshire club at least until the end of the 2018-19 season.

The 34-year-old has played a big role in Hamilton's season so far, scoring three times - including one in the 3-2 win over Ross County on Saturday - and adding five assists for Canning's men, who sit ninth in the Ladbrokes Premiership.

The former Clyde, Inverness and St Mirren man has been a big hit with Accies fans in his second spell with the club.
