Ally McCoist could face disciplinary action
Ally McCoist could face disciplinary action over his comments regarding the panel that handed Rangers a 12-month transfer embargo.
The Rangers manager said on April 24 that the decision could "kill" the club and called for the independent three-man tribunal, which was convened by the Scottish Football Association, to be publicly named.
McCoist could now face a similar judicial panel to explain his comments once the issues surrounding the Rangers membership of the SFA are cleared up.
The SFA revealed the news in a question and answer session on their official website.
It read: "The compliance officer communicated with Rangers FC in mid-June to confirm that the matter has been reported and will be initiated through the normal judicial panel protocol upon conclusion of the other outstanding issues affecting the club."
Ibrox officials knew the identity of the panel, whose identities were later leaked on the internet.
The three men were subsequently handed security advice by Strathclyde Police following alleged threats.
Raith Rovers, whose director Eric Drysdale was on the panel, claimed they had to employ 24-hour security after someone threatened to set fire to their ground.
McCoist told Rangers TV at the time: "Who are these people? I want to know who these people are.
"I'm a Rangers supporter and the Rangers supporters and the Scottish public deserve to know who these people are, people who are working for the SFA.
"I think we have a right to know who is handing out this punishment to us, I really do.
"In terms of our supporters, again they have received another kicking and we just feel it's time to start fighting back.
"You can guarantee we will be fighting back."
McCoist later condemned the threats made to the panel members but defended his calls for transparency.
The transfer embargo remains a topic of contention with Sevco Scotland in discussions with the SFA over the ban as they look to secure Rangers' membership of the governing body.
