Rangers striker Nacho Novo has been charged with improper conduct for allegedly gesturing to Aberdeen supporters in last month's Clydesdale Bank Premier League game at Pittodrie.

The 30-year-old Spaniard was pictured with his shorts lowered beneath his buttocks as he left the pitch at the end of the game, but it is the alleged finger gesture that has landed him with an Scottish Football Association charge.

An SFA spokesperson said: "The review panel today decided that there was a case to answer in respect of the alleged case of improper conduct on the part of Rangers player Nacho Novo, having allegedly gestured to Aberdeen supporters after the match on November 28.

"Subsequently the matter is being referred to the disciplinary committee for investigation and/or consideration."

The case will be heard at the next disciplinary committee meeting on January 26.
