Livingston are handed a transfer ban after allegedly defaulting on tax payments, meaning that no new players can be signed until the matter is resolved.

Scottish Championship club Livingston have been handed a transfer ban after allegedly defaulting on tax payments.

The punishment means that the Lions will be unable to sign any new players until the matter is resolved in full.

A spokesman for the Scottish Professional Football League said: "The SPFL has been provided with information by a Livingston Football Club director which indicates a default in relation to HMRC payments.

"Under SPFL rules an embargo on the registration of professional players is automatic in these circumstances."

Livingston kicked off their Championship campaign with a 2-1 loss at the hands of Hibernian on Saturday.
