ST Mirren's Paul McGinn is to face no further punishment after the SFA reviewed his elbow on Cammy Smith.

The defender was booked by referee Willie Collum following the incident in Saturday's defeat to Dundee United. 

SFA compliance officer Clare Whyte has now looked at the footage again and has decided no further action is required.

Dundee United manager Robbie Neilson called the elbow a 'disgrace' and criticised referee Collum for not taking more action. 

McGinn faced the prospect of missing St Mirren's crucial clash with Aberdeen on Saturday. 

Elsewhere, the club has confirmed veteran Adam Eckersley has signed a pre-contract with Forfar Athletic.

The 33-year-old joined the League One side in January until the end of the season. 

With his St Mirren contract set to expire at the end of the season he has put pen to paper to continue playing his football at Station Park next season.

Eckersley joined St Mirren in January 2017 and made 42 appearances in the Black & White, helping the club complete the ‘great escape’ to avoid relegation to League One, before winning the Ladbrokes Championship last season.

A club spokesperson said: "We’d like to thank Adam for his contributions and wish him all the best for his future."
