Rangers pair charged over media comments

Rangers manager Ally McCoist and chief executive Charles Green have been issued with notices of complaint by the Scottish Football Association over comments made in the media.

Green faces a charge of bringing the game into disrepute for claiming “bigotry” was one of the reasons behind his club being denied entry to the Clydesdale Bank Premier League.

McCoist has allegedly breached disciplinary rules as a result of comments he made about the SFA’s Judicial Panel in April, when he demanded the panel members be named publicly.

Rangers and McCoist have until August 17 to respond, with a principal hearing date of August 30 set for both cases to be heard.
