Aston Villa defender Micah Richards will serve a one-match suspension with immediate effect after admitting a Football Association misconduct charge, the governing body has announced.
The centre-back was also fined £10,000 for his behaviour in the tunnel after last month's defeat against Swansea, and will miss tonight's clash with Spurs at White Hart Lane.
Remi Garde will watch Aston Villa at Tottenham ahead of his expected appointment.
Reports by Press Association Sport say the 49-year-old could take over at Villa on Monday, with the club bottom of the Barclays Premier League.
He will watch Villa at White Hart Lane on Monday evening even if his role has not been rubber-stamped by the club before kick-off.
Villa targeted Garde to replace Tim Sherwood after they sacked the former Tottenham boss in October, just eight months into a three-and-a-half-year deal.
Caretaker boss Kevin MacDonald will still take the side for their game against Spurs, with Garde's first match in charge set to be Sunday's visit of leaders Manchester City.
