The SFA has set a date for August 6 for the disciplinary file

Hearts and Partick Thistle say they are “incredulous” that the Scottish FA has accused them of taking legal action to quash their relegation.

A court has referred its case against the FBCL to an arbitration which must take place in the coming days.

The SFA says that by not using arbitration at first instance, the clubs have broken its rules.

Hearts, relegated from the Premiership, and Thistle, from the Championship, want the SFA procedure to be delayed.

The governing body has set a date for August 6 for the disciplinary case to be heard.

“We are incredulous to have received a notice of complaint from the SFA in these circumstances,” said their joint statement.
