Dunfermline hit with 15-point deduction

Scottish First Division side Dunfermline have been docked 15 points for going into interim administration.

The Scottish Football League enforced the immediate points deduction following a board meeting on Tuesday. The penalty puts Dunfermline into ninth place, below Cowdenbeath in the relegation play-off spot.

The SFL also imposed a transfer embargo which prohibits the club signing players aged over 21 until they come out of administration.

Dunfermline will also be subject to a further 10-point penalty and be required to pay a £150,000 guarantee if they do not secure a Company Voluntary Arrangement by the start of next season.

A statement from the league read: "The Scottish Football League regrets the current situation that Dunfermline Athletic FC finds itself in. We are fully aware of the impact this situation has had on all concerned, especially players, staff and fans of the club.

"The SFL has a duty to protect the integrity and on-going smooth-running of the league and therefore following a thorough process, the SFL board has decided that Dunfermline Athletic Football Club Limited is guilty of conduct contrary to league rules, the interests of the league and its member clubs.''
