Celtic striker Nadir Ciftci will miss the first six games of the domestic season after being found guilty of a biting offence.

The summer signing from Dundee United received an eight-game ban - two of which are suspended - after being found guilty of biting Jim McAlister during a Dundee derby on the final day of last season.

The 23-year-old Turkish striker had denied the offence but was found guilty of excessive misconduct by a judicial panel convened by the Scottish Football Association.
