SFA schedules hearing against Rangers, club owner


GLASGOW, Scotland (AP) -- The Scottish Football Association will hear disciplinary charges against Rangers and owner Craig Whyte on March 29 following an independent inquiry into the club's financial problems.

Whyte has been issued with notices of complaint over breaches of two disciplinary rules, a week after he was ruled unfit to hold a position in football.

Rangers face five allegations of rule breaches, including failing to abide by SFA regulations over the "fit and proper person" test.

The record 54-time Scottish champion has been deducted 10 points for entering bankruptcy protection and could face liquidation before the end of the season if a buyer cannot be found.
