Robbie censured

11th June 2015

Head coach free to take to the dugout after being censured by SFA Judicial Panel.

Robbie Neilson will be free to start Premiership life in the dugout after he was censured at this morning’s Judicial Panel meeting at Hampden.

The head coach was sent to the stands in the final game of the season against Rangers at Tynecastle on May 2, and was subsequently issued with a notice of complaint by the SFA Compliance Officer.

However, after meeting with the Judicial Panel today, a censure was issued instead of a ban, freeing up the Championship-winning coach to return to the Tynecastle dugout come the start of the new season.

The Jambos will find out who their opening game of the 2015/16 season is against on June 19.
