Rangers defender Madjid Bougherra has admitted his disappointment after discovering he could be suspended for the final Old Firm derby of the season.
The former Charlton player, who moved to Ibrox last summer, is facing a one-match ban after collecting a yellow card in last Wednesday's victory at St Mirren.
Bougherra's punishment is due to come into force on the weekend beginning 2nd May, when Rangers are due to play Celtic in what may be a decisive SPL derby.
However, with the division splitting in half this weekend and each side's last five fixtures set to be allocated renewed dates, Bougherra has his fingers crossed the derby will be postponed.
He told his club's official website: "After the St Mirren game, I did not know how many yellow cards I had, but after the match I was concerned.
"I do not know why it takes two weeks for a suspension to kick in but when I found out it could be against Celtic, I could not believe it.
"I went to my house and said to my family that I could miss Celtic and they could not believe it either."
