KILMARNOCK have been cleared of allegations that they forged a player's signature on a document following an investigation by the Scottish Professional Football League.

The claim came from a former employee who says she is taking the club to an industrial tribunal.

The alleged incident took place last month although it is unclear which player was at the centre of the claim. However, Neil Doncaster, the SPFL chief executive, released a statement last night which confirmed that no action would be taken.
