Five Rangers players who breached Covid-19 rules have been given a six-game ban by the Scottish FA.
Bongani Zungu, Nathan Patterson, Calvin Bassey, Dapo Mebude and Brian Kinnear were all cited after a party was broken up by police in February.
The group were fined by the club, who were also in dialogue with the SFA and Scottish government about the incident.
A four-match ban will be served immediately, with two suspended until the end of the season.

A disciplinary hearing took place on Thursday last week, with Tuesday’s outcome meaning those still involved with first-team duties will miss a large chunk of the season run-in.
Bassey, Patterson – who has been playing at right-back in place of injured captain James Tavernier – and on-loan Amiens player Zungu have featured for Steven Gerrard’s side this season, while Mebude is on loan at Queen of the South. Goalkeeper Kinnear is a youth player.
Both Patterson and Zungu have played since returning from a period of isolation following the breach.
Earlier this season, Rangers duo Jordan Jones and George Edmundson were banned by the club for two weeks for attending an illegal house party.
