Aberdeen FC non-executive director Duncan Skinner has been charged £1,000 for breaching the Scottish FA's gambling regulations.

Skinner received two £500 fines after betting during the 2014-15 and 2015-16 seasons. He placed 589 bets on 1,465 games over the last four seasons, with 81 of them involving Aberdeen. 

He put 74 bets on Aberdeen to win, six on a draw and one on Aberdeen to lose to Celtic on February 1, 2017.

The SFA disciplinary hearing today found Skinner was in breach of Disciplinary Rule 31 in the 2014-15 and the 2015-2016 season which states: "No club, official, Team Official or other member of Team Staff, player, match official or other person under the jurisdiction of the Scottish FA shall gamble in any way on a football match."

Two further charges regarding the 2016-17 season will be decided in March 2018 when Skinner will appear at a further hearing.
