Rangers fined £15,000 for rowdy incidents against Celtic and Hibernian

Sport - MorelosRangers have been fined £15,000 by the Scottish FA for failing to act in an “orderly fashion” in games against Celtic and Hibernian in December.

The charges relate to behaviour during the wins at Celtic Park and Easter Road.

Two-thirds of the fine results from the Old Firm match, for gestures made by Alfredo Morelos and Ryan Kent.

There was a mass confrontation at Easter Road, during which coaches from both sides received red cards.

Rangers had previously stated they were “astounded” at the charges and would contest them “in the most robust manner possible”.

And it has been reported that they will appeal against the fine.

The Scottish Premiership club have been ordered to pay £10,000 immediately, with the remaining £5,000 suspended until the end of the season.
