Hearts' SFA administration hearing postponed

Hearts' hearing for the notice of complaint issued by the Scottish Football Association for the Tynecastle club going into administration has been postponed until next month.

The hearing was meant to take place today but the SFA released a short statement declaring that "due to the unavailability of tribunal members, today's judicial panel tribunal has been postponed" and it will now take place on Thursday, August 1.

The Edinburgh club were forced to call in the administrators on June 19 and have been charged with an alleged breach of disciplinary rule 14, which relates to suffering an insolvency event.

Possible punishments by the SFA could include a fine or suspension or termination of membership from the governing body.

Hearts will start the first Scottish Professional Football League season with a 15-point penalty for moving into administration.

The threat of court action over a partially-paid £100,000 tax bill sparked the decision to place Hearts into administration last month, with BDO taking over the running of the club.
