Ghana midfielder Rahin Ayew has been handed a three-match ban and a 500 Euro fine by the disputes committee of the Royal Belgian Football Association.
The SK Lierse player received a straight red card for a tackle on Lokeren striker Nill De Paw in the 67th minute last Saturday.
The disciplinary committee on Monday decided to hand the versatile the ban but he disagrees.
SK Lierse can still appeal against the ruling.
Ayew will miss the league games against Charleroi (9 February), KV Mechelen (16 February) and Beerschot (23 February).
