It was announced on Wednesday that the club’s appeal had been rejected and the three-game suspension for the centre-back will stand.

Did you think the red card decision would be overturned?

The Dutch defender was given the red card following a tackle from behind on Liverpool’s Harvey Elliott which resulted in the youngster suffering a significant injury to his ankle.

However, despite the words to emerge from Elliott in defence of the Leeds ace, the 22-year-old will now be unavailable for Marcelo Bielsa for the foreseeable future.

Speaking on the matter (0:31), McCoist had the following to say about the decision by the FA to reject Leeds’ appeal against the onfield decision by Craig Pawson:

“Sadly, no. I’m not surprised.

“They had a chance to absolve that boy of any blame, and that poor lad’s challenge and they’ve not done it. So that guy will now spend the rest of his career thinking he was responsible in some way, shape or form for that injury to Harvey Elliott.

“It’s scandalous. Bewilderment at some of the decisions these people make. Anyone with any intelligence, any level of intelligence can look at that tackle, see it was a horrific injury, but there was no malice in the challenge at all, none whatsoever, it was not a red card, it was just an unfortunate footballing incident, simple as.

“Anybody with any intelligence and they had the chance to absolve that boy of any blame and they have not done it, it’s a shocking decision.”

TIF Thoughts on Ally McCoist’s comments about the Pascal Struijk decision…

We think this will be a tough call for everyone at Leeds to take considering the injured Liverpool ace has spoken out publically to defend the Leeds star.

A similar case was seen just two seasons ago when Heung-min Son had his red card rescinded after the incident involving him and Andre Gomes’ horrific injury at Goodison Park. Although the Tottenham Hotspur winger saw his decision overturned, Leeds can not afford to get caught up in the appeal with a huge clash against Newcastle United coming up on Friday.
