The SFA have opted out of announcing the punishment for Nathan Patterson and the Ibrox Covidiots.

On February 14 the Ibrox starlet and four team-mates were issued with Fixed Penalties for attending a house party during Lockdown.

Within three weeks of news emerging that Boli Bolingoli hadn’t self isolated after taking a day trip to Spain the defender was given a three match SFA ban.

Four days after Patterson enjoyed his party James Tavernier injured his leg with the SFA strangely hesitant to act on a similar timeline to Bolingoli.

The Daily Record reports:

The wait continues for the five Rangers stars awaiting a verdict from the SFA regarding punishment for attending a lockdown party in February as they face a delay before finding out their fate.

Nathan Patterson, Calvin Bassey, Bongani Zungu, Dapo Mebude and Brian Kinnear were pulled up by the governing body on March 9 as they were collectively handed a notice of complaint for the Covid rule breaches.

The hearing date was set for Thursday, March 25 and it was expected that the verdict from that process was finally due on Monday. However Record Sport now understands it won’t be until Tuesday – five days on from the original hearing and three weeks after the charge was issued – that any potential punishments are dished out.

Tavernier has still to make his comeback from injury, Patterson came on as a substitute in the recent Glasgow Derby.
