Hibernian manager Pat Fenlon has been handed a four-match ban by the Scottish Football Association, with two of those games suspended until the end of the forthcoming season.
The Easter Road boss was issued with a notice of complaint by the SFA following his dismissal in the final stages of his team's William Hill Scottish Cup final defeat by Hearts at Hampden last month.
Fenlon was charged with misconduct, which covers offences including insulting or abusive behaviour, after making a gesture as his side lost 5-1 to their Edinburgh rivals.
The judicial panel tribunal hearing took place on Thursday, with the outcome being a four-match suspension - two matches effective immediately and two matches suspended until the end of season 2012/13.
Those two games will come into effect in the event that Fenlon is reported for and subsequently found guilty of a breach of the SFA's Rule 203, which relates to misconduct by a member of team staff, within that period.
The ban applies to all competitions.
The former Bohemians manager was sent off by referee Craig Thomson after making the gesture with his arm as Hearts supporters mockingly chanted "There's only one Pat Fenlon" but he denied reacting to his tormentors.
"I made a gesture in relation to the way we were playing," Fenlon said after the game.
"We kept giving the ball away cheaply.
"I don't know what they were singing to be honest."
Fenlon appeared confused as to why he was punished by Thomson, adding: "I didn't get to speak to the referee, he was the last person I wanted to speak to.
"It was frustration with the way we are playing. The referee said it was the police but I spoke to the police who said they had nothing to do with it so it is disappointing."
