Partick Thistle Football Club has received formal notification of a complaint against Gary Caldwell in relation to our Ladbrokes Championship fixture against Falkirk.
Gary is alleged to have breached the following Disciplinary Rules:
DR 72 – No recognised football body, club, official, Team Official or other member of Team Staff, player or other person under the jurisdiction of the Scottish FA, shall in an interview, a ‘blog’ on the internet, on a social networking or microblogging site, or in any other manner calculated or likely to lead to publicity (i) criticise the Decision(s) and/or performance(s) of any or all match official(s) in such a way as to indicate bias or incompetence on the part of such match official; or (ii) make remarks about such match official(s) which impinge on his character. For the avoidance of doubt this Rule applies (i) whether reported to the Scottish FA by a match official for Misconduct or otherwise, and (ii) where remarks are brought to the Scottish FA’s attention, or of which the Scottish FA becomes aware, by whatever manner or means. There shall be a presumption that any material published in such manner was published in the name of and/or with the authority of the person or body bearing to have published the material.
DR 76 – No official, Team Official, other member of Team Staff or player shall engage in harassment, either orally or physically, of any of the match officials officiating, during and/or directly after a match involving the club of the official, Team Official, other member of Team Staff or player.
The Club will be making no further comment at this time.
