Crisis-hit champions Rangers and
majority shareholder Craig Whyte were charged by the Scottish FA
(SFA) on Thursday over seven breaches of its rules.
Whyte has been charged with two rule breaches, the SFA said
on its website. The club, who went into
administration last month, face five charges.
Among the offences facing Rangers and Whyte, considered by
an independent inquiry last week to be unfit to own a football
club, are bringing the game into disrepute and not acting in the
best interests of the sport.
Rangers have also been charged with breaching rules
concerning compliance with SFA articles, insolvency and the
procurement of staff, officials or players.
A hearing has been set for March 29.
The Glasgow club went into administration over nine million
pounds in unpaid payroll and sales taxes.
Rangers players agreed to take temporary wage cuts of
between 25 and 75 percent last week so the club could fulfil
their fixtures this season.
The club, who have won a world record 54 league titles, also
face a larger tax bill of 50 million pounds relating to the use
of trusts to pay players over the last decade.
