Kenny Shiels is in hot water with the SFA

Kilmarnock manager Kenny Shiels has been issued with two notices of complaint by the Scottish Football Association's compliance officer.

The Rugby Park boss is alleged to have breached three disciplinary rules as a result of comments he made in a radio interview and newspaper articles following their Clydesdale Bank Premier League defeat to Inverness on November 3.

The Rugby Park boss also faces a misconduct charge for "dissent, adopting an aggressive attitude and by the use of offensive, insulting or abusive language" during the 2-1 loss to St Johnstone at the weekend.

Shiels was sent to the stand following a heated debate with fourth official Andrew Dallas after being enraged by referee Stevie O'Reilly's decision to dismiss skipper Manuel Pascali.

The Killie manager has until December 5 to respond to both notices of complaint, with December 13 set as the principal hearing date for the two cases.
