SPL receive match report on Boruc incident

The Scottish Premier League have received the match report from Sunday's Old Firm derby but will not say whether they will take action any action over Artur Boruc's victory celebrations.

The Scottish Football Association will not open any proceedings against the Celtic goalkeeper, who unveiled a `God bless the Pope' slogan above a picture of former pontiff John Paul II on a T-shirt after the 3-2 win over Rangers at Parkhead.

The SPL cannot take any individual action against the Pole and say any correspondance with Celtic would remain private.

The report from Willie McDougall, a former police chief superintendent and SFA security officer, was handed to the SPL today.

McDougall was reported to have deemed Boruc's behaviour 'irresponsible' but the SPL would not confirm what was written.

An SPL spokesman said: 'I can confirm we have received the report and we will be studying it.

'We will not be discussing anything further about what is contained in the match report or how the process is moved forward.

'Generally speaking, if there is anything contained in the match delegate's report it is usually taken forward to the club in private.

'If there is any outcome at the end of the process, that may be made public.

'We have no authority to take individual action against any player. Our relationship is with the clubs.'

The SFA have stressed they will take no action after referee Craig Thomson's report contained no mention of the incident.

FIFA rules state that 'a player removing his jersey to reveal slogans will be sanctioned by the competition organiser', but the world governing body have left the matter with the SFA.
