Glentoran goalkeeper Aaron McCarey has been found guilty of bringing the game into disrepute by the Irish FA’s Disciplinary Committee.
McCarey has been sanctioned for his conduct during a NIFL Danske Bank Premiership match between Glentoran and Coleraine on Saturday 16 October.
The committee agreed the Glentoran goalkeeper should be suspended for two games, starting on 8 November.
McCarey had already been sanctioned with violent conduct and was initially banned for three matches following an incident involving Glentoran team-mate Bobby Burns.
The club has the right to appeal the further two-match ban.
McCarey was charged by the Disciplinary Committee with bringing the game into disrepute under Article 17 of the Irish FA’s Articles of Association.
