St Johnstone Players Suspended After Fight

Two players have been suspended after a fight broke out at a Scottish Premiership football match.

St Johnstone's Danny Swanson and Richard Foster were suspended after the incident at half-time.

The players were both given red cards during the Hamilton-St Johnstone game at the Superseal Stadium in South Lanarkshire.

Reports of police involvement, St Johnstone said, did not refer to any of its playing staff.

A statement published on the club's website said: "Following the incident in today's match against Hamilton Academical FC, the club wishes to advise that players Danny Swanson and Richard Foster have been suspended pending a full and thorough investigation into the matter.

"The club also wishes to make it clear that, contrary to some reports, no player or member of staff has been spoken to or interviewed by Police Scotland.''

Police said they were investigating reports of disorder before the game.

A spokesman for Police Scotland said: "There was disorder outside the ground and we are continuing our investigations.''
