Ian Black: Rangers midfielder is accused of betting against his own club

Black has been issued with a notice of complaint which includes an allegation of "betting on three matches on his then registered club not to win."

These incidents apparently happened in between March 2006 when Black was at Inverness Caley Thistle, and July 2013 - a year after he joined Third Division Rangers.

The 28-year-old also spent three years at Hearts during the period in question.

Black has also been charged with breaching the SFA's disciplinary rule 22 by "betting on a further 10 football matches that involved then-registered club" and "betting on a further 147 football matches".
