SPFL Hearts get reprieve


Heart's' hearing for the notice of complaint issued by the SFA for going into administration has been postponed until next month. The hearing was scheduled to take place today but the SFA released a short statement explaining that “due to the unavailability of tribunal members, today’s judicial panel tribunal has been postponed” and it has been rearranged for Thursday, August 1.

Administrators were called on June 19 and the Edinburgh club have been charged with an alleged breach of disciplinary rule 14, which relates to suffering an insolvency event.

The SFA could choose to fine, suspend or terminate Hearts' membership from the governing body if they decide to hand out any punishment.

Gary Locke's side will start the first SPFL season with a 15-point penalty for entering administration.

The threat of court action over a partially-paid £100,000 tax bill sparked the decision to place Hearts into administration last month, with BDO taking over the running of the club.
