Ross County manager John Hughes and Hamilton head coach Brian Rice have both been hit with Scottish Football Association disciplinary charges over comments made in the media.

Hughes faces charges relating to recent games against St Mirren and Hibernian, while Rice has received a notice of complaint over his comments after a Scottish Cup defeat against the Paisley side.

The pair have both been accused of breaching the same disciplinary rules: firstly relating to criticising match officials in such a way that implies bias, incompetence or impinges on their character, and secondly not acting in the best interests of football.

The former Falkirk team-mates and coaching colleagues both face hearings on April 29.
