Hearts hit with £10k fine over poor disciplinary record

Feb 3 2009 By Chris Roberts

HEARTS were hit with a £10,000 fine last night and warned to clean up their act.

The Jambos had already forked out £30,000 to the SFA as a result of their shocking disciplinary record last season.

Yesterday's £10,000 penalty was suspended and would have been wiped out if the club's discipline had improved.

But this term the Tynecastle outfit have had seven players sent off and have racked up 37 bookings - a staggering total of 163 points.

Now Csaba Laszlo's men have been warned they will fork out even more if their players do not behave.

An SFA spokesman said: "Hearts know if there isn't a change in disciplinary standards for the rest of the season they will be due further sanctions.

"Their record isn't good enough and they will be working hard to make sure things improve."

Only one SPL club has a worse record than Hearts. Kilmarnock have also received a warning after picking up 178 disciplinary points with two red cards and 56 cautions.

Celtic have the best record with only 99 points from two sendings off and 29 bookings.

Clyde are the First Division bad boys, having racked up five red cards, 61 yellows and a massive 220 points.

They have been warned along with Ross County - 196 points - and Morton.

Second Division Stranraer have the worst disciplinary record in Scotland, with nine players red carded in the first half of the season. They have been warned along with Alloa and Arbroath.

Third Division Forfar have been ordered to pay a suspended fine of £1000 which was imposed last July and warnings have also been issued to East Stirling, Elgin and Montrose.
