Alfredo Morelos goes down under the attentions of Livingston goalkeeper Max Stryjek. Picture: SNS
The striker was booked as he went down in the box despite Livi keeper Max Stryjek appearing to clip his heel.
The incident sparked a furious response from Rangers boss Steven Gerrard who was sent to the stands after marching onto the pitch to confront Beaton at half-time.
Morelos will now have his case dealt with by the SFA's fast-track disciplinary panel, with a hearing set for Friday.
