Cove Rangers manager Paul Hartley has been hit with a potential one-game ban.
The Scottish FA’s notice of complaint comes after the former Scotland, Celtic and Aberdeen star was sent to the stand during a play-off match away to Airdrieonians on May 11.
Dramatic play-off defeat for Cove
Cove Rangers, who finished third in League One, were contesting the Championship play-off against the Diamonds, who ended one place above them in the division.
Airdrie won the dramatic second leg 3-2, and 4-3 on aggregate, ending Cove’s bid to reach Scottish football’s second tier.
Hartley protested that his side should have been awarded a spot-kick and was sent to the stand.
A principal hearing date of Thursday, June 3, has been set, with a one-match suspension offered.
