Former Rangers chief executive Charles Green has been fined £2,500 by the Scottish Football Association for alleged 'offensive and racist comments'.

Green was charged with "bringing the game into disrepute by making comments in a media interview of an offensive and racist nature" and "not acting in the best interests of football" when commenting on Rangers director Imran Ahmad last month.

It is understood that Green referred to Ahmad as "my Paki friend" in a newspaper interview, which led to criticism from various quarters.

Green, who has 30 days to pay the fine, stood down from his position at Rangers in April.
