Soccer-Rangers' Black given 10-match ban for breaking betting rules


Sept 12 (Reuters) - Rangers midfielder Ian Black was given a 10-match ban by a Scottish FA disciplinary tribunal on Thursday after admitting breaching betting rules.

Black, who was also fined 7,500 pounds ($11,900), will serve an immediate three-game ban and the remaining seven will be suspended until the end of the season, the SFA said in a statement.

The further suspension will take effect upon any breach of SFA rules 22 or 23, which apply to betting.

Black, a former Hearts and Inverness Caledonian Thistle player, was accused of betting against his "then-registered club" on three occasions and gambling on a further 157 matches during the period from March 4 2006 to July 28 2013.
