Kilmarnock have been charged with breaching SPFL rules after a suspended player took part in a game.

Daniel Armstrong played the last 18 minutes of Saturday’s League Cup game against East Kilbride at the K-Park training academy despite being subject to a one match ban.

The ban was carried over from the winger’s time at Raith Rovers last season.

The Rugby Park club have been charged with breaching SPFL rules and regulations and will now face a disciplinary hearing on Thursday.

Tommy Wright’s men took the three group stage points on Saturday with a 2-0 win over the lowland league team.

They are now due to play Clyde, Greenock Morton and Stranraer in the rest of the group matches before their Championship season begins at home to local rivals Ayr United on August 2.
