New boss to watch debut game from stand

Hibs boss Terry Butcher has been hit with a two game ban, and will spend his debut as Easter Road boss in the stand.

The Hibees travel to Paisley on Saturday to face St Mirren, but Butcher has been banned after an incident with Dundee Utd coach and former Hibs striker Darren Jackson, In Inverness Caley's League Cup win last month.

United striker Nadir Cifiti caused a brawl, that had both Jackson and Butcher sent off from their technical area, and the player red carded, (that was reduced to yellow on appeal).

Butcher has been hit with a two game ban, with one suspended until the end of the season, and a £1,000 fine for "acting in an agressive manner towards opposition players".
