He shoved assistant Mark Russell after a throw-in was awarded to the Rams.
A statement from the Football Association on Friday morning read: “Aston Villa’s Leandro Bacuna will serve a six-match suspension following his dismissal in the game against Derby County.
“He admitted a breach of FA Rule E3 in that his behaviour in or around the 94th minute of the game constituted violent conduct in circumstances where the standard punishment of three matches would be clearly insufficient.
“Following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing, a three-match suspension was added to the sanction the player is already serving following his dismissal.”

In March 2005 Southampton’s David Prutton was banned for 10 matches after shoving another official, Alan Wiley, as he tried to remonstrate with one of his assistants.
Last week Blackburn midfielder Hope Akpan received a four-match ban for a push on referee Scott Duncan after he protested against a goal being disallowed for handball.
