Saints midfielder David Wotherspoon has also been handed a three-match ban after he was sent off for throwing an elbow at opponent Florian Flecker seconds after making his way on to the McDiarmid Park turf.

Callum Davidson’s side were beaten by LASK 2-0 in Perth, which saw the Austrian visitors win the Europa League Conference play-off match-up 3-1 on aggregate. Saints have been found guilty for the "throwing of objects" by supporters during the loss and handed down a fine of £1,900.
