Rangers Ryan Kent faces SFA complaint over clash with Scott Brown

Rangers winger Ryan Kent will face an SFA review panel over his clash with Scott Brown on Sunday.

The 22-year-old struck the Celtic captain in the face, but the incident was missed by the match officials.

Television pictures clearly showed Kent lashing out at Brown though, and today he has been hit with a fast track charge for the incident.




With the tribunal set for Thursday, Kent will have until 3pm on Wednesday to respond. If he decides to challenge the charge he will be available for the clash with Hearts.

The incident will now be put to a panel of experts to decide on the sanctions facing the on-loan star. The disciplinary update announced by the SFA has no note of the potential sanction but the normal punishment for violent conduct is a two-game ban.

The loss of the winger would be a further set-back to Rangers‘ attempts to finish second after already losing Alfredo Morelos to a four-game suspension in the aftermath of the game.
