Excellent news for Aberdeen ahead of their trip to the capital as it has been announced that arguably Hearts best player of recent weeks, Laryea Kingston, has been handed a three match ban and will miss the remainder of the season.

Kingston has been punished for his remarks to referee Steve Conroy after he was sent off for a well merited second booking and called Conroy a racist, unaware that Conroy is in fact married to a coloured woman.

Conroy submitted on his match report that Kingston used ‘offensive, insulting and abusive language’ towards him after he showed him his red card.

The suspension of Kingston has balanced Aberdeen`s loss of captain Russell Anderson and the only down point of all this for Jimmy Calderwood is that he at least knew what Kingston was capable of and may now have to contend with one of the many unknown prospects Hearts have at their disposal.

To put the loss of Kingston into context, Hearts fans have been gloating that they have not missed Paul Hartley since he left for Celtic and that the on loan signing from Terek Grozny has more than filled the now Celtic stars position.

Ghanaian Kingston will miss the Aberdeen match and also crucial games against Hibs and Kilmarnock unless the Tynecastle club appeal to the SFA and win.
