Ally McCoist could face action from the Scottish Football Association over his demand for the identities of members of the governing body’s judicial panel to be revealed.
In April, the Rangers boss demanded to find out the identities of three men who imposed sanctions on the club.
The Scottish FA’s Compliance Officer, Vincent Lunny, recently wrote to the Rangers boss asking him to explain his comments.
However, the issue will not be dealt with fully until the conclusion of the club's dispute over gaining SFA membership.
Depending on the response he receives, Lunny could issue a notice of complaint against the 49-year-old.
An SFA statement read: “The Compliance Officer communicated with Rangers FC in mid-June to confirm that the matter has been reported and will be initiated through the normal Judicial Panel Protocol upon conclusion of the other outstanding issues affecting the club.”
The Scottish FA’s judicial panel originally imposed a 12-month player registration embargo on the club. The Court of Session ruled in May that the sanction was not available to the panel.
Now the case will be referred back to the governing body’s appeal tribunal, which previously rejected an attempt to overturn it.
McCoist had said: “Who are these people? I want to know who these people are. I'm a Rangers supporter and the Rangers supporters and the Scottish public deserve to know who these people are, people who are working for the SFA.
“Make no mistake about it, this is an SFA decision. They have appointed the panel so therefore they are working for the SFA, but who are they?”
