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 happened between March 2006, when Black was at Inverness Caley Thistle, and July 2013, a year after he joined 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 involving then-registered club' and 'betting on a further 147 football matches'.

In a statement, Rangers said: "Rangers are aware of the notice from the SFA compliance officer, and the club is investigating."

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
