Dundee boss Neil McCann charged by SFA for St Johnstone clash

Dundee boss Neil McCann and St Johnstone goalkeeper Zander Clark have been charged by the SFA for “excessive misconduct”.

The two clashed following the final whistle in the Saints 4-0 thumping of the Dark Blues during heated scenes in the dugouts in the wake of the defeat at Dens Park.

And, after reviewing the footage, the Scottish FA’s compliance officer Tony McGlennan has served both with notices of complaint, with a charge of “excessive misconduct”.

They have until next Thursday to respond and a principal hearing date has been set for Thursday, March 29.

For a member of team staff, the lower end of punishment, should they be found guilty, is a two-match suspension with the possibility of more.

For players, the lower end is a four-match ban, according to SFA rules.

Should Neil be found guilty, he will be in the stands for at least the Hearts match at Dens and the trip to Celtic on April 4.
