Kingston's season over after ban
Laryea Kingston
Kingston has expressed regret for his heated outburst
Hearts' Laryea Kingston has been banned for the rest of the season for abusing referee Steve Conroy when he was sent off at Aberdeen in March.

The Ghanaian midfielder, who served an automatic two-game ban, has been given an additional three-match suspension.

Conroy reported the 26-year-old Kingston for using "offensive, insulting and abusive language".

Having apparently accused Conroy of racist conduct, Kingston has since apologised for his behaviour.

MY SPORT: DEBATE

Unless Hearts appeal the decision, Kingston, who is on loan from Russian side Terek Grozny, will miss Hearts' final three-matches of the campaign against Aberdeen, Hibernian and Kilmarnock.

The club said it was considering launching an appeal, and would make a decision within 48 hours.
