Rangers win court appeal
Wednesday 30 May 2012
Rangers have won their court battle against a Scottish Football Association transfer embargo, after a judge ruled yesterday that SFA disciplinary panel members had acted outside of their powers.
Lord Glennie proposed the case go back to the SFA appeal tribunal that upheld the initial decision by a judicial panel to impose a 12-month ban on registering players aged 18 and over. Following a hearing at the Court of Session in Edinburgh yesterday, the judge accepted the club's petition for a judicial review as he ruled that the SFA could only administer the specific punishments stated in the rule relating to the disrepute charge against the club.
