The 37-year-old will have a hearing on Tuesday, unless Rangers decide to accept the charge.

Rangers are also waiting to hear whether an appeal against Alfredo Morelos' red card against Aberdeen has been successful.

The Colombian received a mandatory two-game ban from all competitions for the red card, with a further Premiership game added because it was his second sending-off in the league this season.

Rangers appealed the decision but their plea was thrown out on Friday night and Morelos will miss Saturday evening's Scottish Cup fifth-round tie against Kilmarnock at Rugby Park.

"Alfredo has had moments prior to us coming here, he's a very competitive player, he gets involved in lots of skirmishes".

"It was noticed, spoke about and gave us motivation before the game".

"When keepers do come out and they're throwing their head, their body at the opponent, 99 times out of 100 it's an unwritten rule that you don't want to endanger the keeper", he told the Daily Record.

But in the meantime, McGregor could also be facing a two-match ban after he appeared to aim a kick at Dons midfielder Lewis Ferguson.

McAllister said: "I just see Allan McGregor getting into position to make the save and then he tucks himself up into a ball to prevent himself being hurt".

No action has been taken against Celtic defender Jozo Simunovic after he caught Hibs forward Oli Shaw with his arm in an aerial challenge.
