The midfielder was shown a straight red for bringing down his opponent moments after Boyce scored from the penalty spot following a dive by Alex Schalk in the 2-2 draw.

The punishment has now been reduced to a yellow card “for recklessly dangerous play”.

It means Brown will be able to play in this Saturday’s Old Firm derby at Ibrox.

He was able to play in the previous match against Rangers at Hampden after the appeal process was held up by the Easter holidays.
