Aberdeen non-executive director Duncan Skinner has been fined £1,000 for breaching betting rules.
The 60-year-old, who joined the Dons board in January 2015, was charged with placing 589 bets on football matches – including 81 bets involving Aberdeen.
It is understood the 60-year-old bet on Celtic to beat Aberdeen on February 1 this year. The Hoops won the match 1-0 thanks to a goal from Dedryck Boyata.
A hearing was scheduled for January 11 but Skinner waived the normal preparation period and appeared in front of a three-man panel at the national stadium today.
Skinner faced four separate charges for bets placed between 2015 and 2017. He received £500 fines for charges relating to the 2014-15 and 2015-16 season with the charges relating to 2016-17 and 2017-18 deferred until Thursday, March 29, 2018 when a disciplinary tribunal will be held.
A spokesman for AFC said: “We note and accept the outcome of the SFA disciplinary panel with regards to Duncan Skinner and will continue to work with the SFA to ensure all associated with Aberdeen FC adhere to all governing body rules, regulations and procedures.”
