Rangers To Learn Fate Of SFA Sanction At End Of March

By iSportconnect | March 16, 2012

Glasgow Rangers F.C and owner Craig White will learn the disciplinary charges they will face on March 29 in what marks a season of financial turmoil for the club that is threatening to spiral out of control.

Only a week after he was ruled unfit to be a club official, Whyte has been issued with notices of complaint over breaches of two disciplinary rules,

Whereas Rangers have been hit with notices of complaint over five alleged breaches of rules, including failing to abide by SFA regulations over the ‘fit and proper person’ test.

The cases will be heard by an SFA judicial panel along with a previously announced notice of complaint over the club’s failure to pay Dundee United money owed from last month’s William Hill Scottish Cup clash at Ibrox.

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

The inquiry had already judged that Rangers should face disrepute charges on four counts – obligations and duties of members, official return, financial records and division of receipts and payment of expenses (Scottish Cup).

Rangers have not submitted audited accounts, required by the end of last year.
