The SFA Disciplinary Committee met today to consider the case against Craig Brown and John Boyle, The found both men guilty but handed out different punishments. The Aberdeen manager was found guilty of misconduct by behaving in a disorderly manner towards the Motherwell chairman, John Boyle, during the game at Fir Park on 2 April. The committee imposed a censure and warning as to Brown’s future conduct. Boyle was found guilty of misconduct by behaving in an inappropriate and inflammatory manner towards the opposing team's club official. The committee imposed a fine of £2,500 on Boyle and he was severely censured and warned as to his future conduct.
