Video evidence played it's part in Steven Naismith being punished for an incident against Serbia

The SFA have heard from FIFA that their Disciplinary Committee have imposed an immediate two-game suspension on Steven Naismith following an incident that took place during the last month’s FIFA World Cup Brazil 2014 Qualifier against Serbia at Hampden Park. This means that Naismith cannot take part in the double-header against Wales in Cardiff on 12 October  and Belgium in Brussels on 16 October.  Scotland National manager, Craig Levein said: "Obviously this is disappointing news but Steven has been very honest and professional throughout the disciplinary process. We named a 25-man squad earlier this week to compensate for any potential suspension, which has now been confirmed, and I am confident we have enough strength in that department to offset the loss of a player who has been in excellent form so far this season."
