The Scottish football news will today be dominated by the outcomes of events at Hampden. And not on the field.

Celtic will hear the outcome of their appeal over Cha Du Ri's dismissal in the weekend's Glasgow derby.

Meanwhile, Rangers and Craig Whyte will find out the verdicts on their own disciplinary charges, with the club facing charges of five rule breaches and Whyte facing two.

The SPL have sent Neil Lennon a third letter in two weeks, asking the Celtic boss to explain his comments about refereeing standards ahead of the match with St Johnstone.

And Hearts have paid their players the wages for March, but there are still outstanding bonuses due.
