Brendan Rodgers said he was disappointed and surprised that Alan Tate's red card at QPR wasn't overturned following an appeal.
QPR's Clint Hill was also sent off but his red card was overturned and he won't serve a 3-match ban like Tate will.
Rodgers told BBC Sport:
'I'm very, very, very disappointed and very surprised,'
'I'm interested to hear the reason behind why Clint Hill doesn't get any ban and Alan Tate does.
'It's a difficult one to try and understand how you can have one federation not give a ban to a player who was sent off in the same incident and another player receive a three-match ban.'
I've been here a short period of time and I've had two dealings with the Welsh FA,'
'The first dealing was when the Swansea City manager was invited to the awards evening for the FA of Wales and when the invite was opened up it was addressed to Paulo Sousa.
'That was my first experience. I could understand if it was maybe the summer but this was four months in.
'So you can understand why I'm not too surprised that they got this one wrong as well.
'There should be one rule for everyone, it's absolutely crazy and this is an example of that: how that one team can not have a player banned for the three games and another player is.
'Our reason as a club to fight the appeal was justified, because obviously QPR felt the same as well and their player got off.
'But for some reason - which we hope to get - Alan has got the three games.
'Take that aside, he's been an important player for us this season so for him to miss three games and not to be in the squad involved is at this period of time is obviously disappointing.
'However, we will be the club that we are and accept the punishment. We're not happy and I'm certainly not happy but we'll take it and move on.'
