Rangers "astounded" to be hit with misconduct charge by SFA

Rangers say they're "astounded" by the misconduct charges they've been served in relation to touchline altercations in games with Hibs and Celtic last month.

They've expressed concern for the way the Scottish Football Association has dealt with the issues - and believe they're treated with a "more stringent code of conduct" than other clubs.

The case will be heard at disciplinary tribunal hearings at Hampden Park on the 6th of February and the club say they have a "firm intention to resist the charges".

"Rangers is astounded by the notices of complaint issued by the SFA," the Glasgow club said in a statement this afternoon.

"It is concerning that it seems the governing body is seeking to hold Rangers to a different and more stringent code of conduct than that applied to others, with unprecedented charges being levied against the Club.

"Fans can be assured that it is our firm intention to resist the charges in the most robust manner possible. Rangers will make further comment after the weekend."
