Kenny Shiels: Kilmarnock manager punished by SFA

An SFA disciplinary tribunal considered charges against both Shiels and Kilmarnock following a radio interview in which he claimed Celtic had "massive influence" over disciplinary hearings, branding them as "the monster of Scottish football".

Shiels was found guilty of breaching two SFA rules; bringing the game into disrepute and failing to act in the best interests of the game by calling into question the judicial panel and questioning the integrity of another member club.

Kilmarnock were also found guilty of failing to ensure that Shiels complies with SFA protocol, but their penalty will be decided on June 21.

The punishment for Shiels comes less than six months since he was banned for four matches for accusing fourth official Andrew Dallas of "fabrication" of evidence.
