Sevco have been hit with two disciplinary charges by UEFA following their Europa League tie with Villarreal.

Despite numerous incidents of missile throwing including hitting a linesman with a coin during a match with Livingston the tribute act haven’t had a single charge against them by the SFA or SPFL.

Per Svard from Sweden was the UEFA delegate who reported the incidents although it appears that the club will escape punishment for the anti-Catholic and anti-Irish chants heard throughout the match.

THE CHARGES

Disciplinary proceedings have been opened following the UEFA Europa League group stage match between Rangers FC and Villarreal CF (0-0), played on 29 November in Scotland.

Charges against Rangers FC
– Field invasions by supporters – Art. 16 (2) of the UEFA Disciplinary Regulations (DR)
– Throwing of objects – Art. 16 (2) DR

The case will be dealt with by the UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body on 13 December.

The fan invading the park happened just before half-time when Danny Candeias was red carded, his second sending off in a fortnight.

Sevco hung in to record a 0-0 draw but require a win next week away to Rapid Vienna to progress to the last 32 of the competition.

Around 10,000 of Scotland’s Shame are expected to travel to the Austrian capital with thousands having bought up tickets for areas of the ground reserved for Rapid supporters.

Despite numerous breaches of UEFA licensing rules, especially in relation to debt, the SFA nominated the Ibrox club ahead of clubs that were UEFA compliant.
