Rangers chief executive Charles Green faces a Scottish Football Association charge over alleged racist comments, the SFA has confirmed.

The Yorkshire man is charged with breaking Disciplinary Rule 66 and Disciplinary Rule 71 which guard against comments which bring the came into disrepute and those which are not in the "best interests" of the SFA.

Green was criticised by campaign group Show Racisim the Red Card this week after he was quoted in a newspaper report referring to former Ibrox director, Imran Ahmad, as his "little Paki friend".
