Hull City's Allan McGregor has red card rescinded by Football Association

Hull City goalkeeper Allan McGregor has his red card rescinded following successful appeal to the Football Association.

The Football Association have rescinded Hull City goalkeeper Allan McGregor's red card against West Ham United following a successful appeal.

The 32-year-old was sent off after colliding with Mohamed Diame in the box during Wednesday night's 2-1 defeat at Upton Park.

It has been revealed by manager Steve Bruce today that McGregor is likely to miss the rest of the season after he suffered kidney damage as a result of the clash.

With regards to Hull's successful appeal, an FA statement said: "Hull City's Allan McGregor has had his claim for wrongful dismissal upheld following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing today.

"McGregor was dismissed for denying a goal scoring opportunity during the game against West Ham United on March 26, 2014. The player's standard punishment, therefore, has been withdrawn with immediate effect."

The shot-stopper was taken to hospital after he left the field.
