Aberdeen FC director 'placed bets on 1465 matches'
Duncan Skinner is accused of placing one wager against his own club in Celtic match.
An Aberdeen FC director has been accused of breaching football rules by placing 589 bets across almost 1500 matches, including one against his own team.
Duncan Skinner is being investigated by the Scottish FA, including over one alleged wager supporting Celtic to beat the Dons in February.
In that game, the non-executive director is said to have correctly predicted the Scottish Premiership champions would win, which they did 1-0.
Over the last three years, Skinner allegedly placed bets, including accumulators, on 1465 games.
A total of 81 involved the Dons, who won 74 of them, drew six and lost one at Celtic Park.
The claims against Skinner, who is also chairman of the Aberdeen FC Community Trust, are not linked to match-fixing.
Skinner would face a minimum fine of £1000 if found in breach of the rules.
He has until January 3 to respond to the charge, with the hearing due to take place at Hampden on January 11.
The SFA's disciplinary rules state: "No club, official, team official or other member of team staff, player, match official or other person under the jurisdiction of the Scottish FA shall gamble in any way on a football match."
An Aberdeen FC spokesman said: "The club is obviously aware of the citation and, along with Duncan, is co-operating fully with the SFA, in addition to conducting its own internal review.
"As this is a live case, we will not be commenting further at this point."
