SFA charges for Whyte and club


Click to follow

Scottish Football Association notices of complaint have been issued to Rangers over alleged breaches of five disciplinary rules and to the club chairman, Craig Whyte, over two alleged breaches, a week after he was ruled unfit to be a club official.

Rangers' alleged breaches of rules include failure to abide by SFA regulations over the "fit and proper person" test.

The club and owner have both been hit with two identical charges – allegedly breaching Rule 66, by bringing the game into disrepute, and Rule 71, which decrees that clubs and officials should "act in the best interests of Association Football and shall not act in any manner which is improper".

The charges will be heard by an SFA judicial panel on 29 March.
