Steven Naismith has been suspended by FIFA for Scotland’s forthcoming World Cup double-header.

A disciplinary panel found the Everton forward guilty of elbowing Serbia’s Srdjan Mijailovic during last month’s goalless draw at Hampden Park.

The two-match ban rules Naismith out of his country's Group A qualifiers against Wales in Cardiff on 12 October and Belgium in Brussels on 16 October.

Naismith was initially named in manager Craig Levein's squad but will no longer attend the meet-up.

“Obviously this is disappointing news, but Steven has been very honest and professional throughout the disciplinary process," said Levein. “We named a 25-man squad to compensate for any potential suspension, which has now been confirmed.”
