Rangers Break The Rules
TWO FOOTBALL League clubs have been fined for failing to abide by the FA`s doping control regulations.
QPR and Bradford City have been fined £6,000 and £1,000 respectively for repeated failure to provide accurate information to sampling officers trying to locate players they want to test.
It is prohibited for a player to miss three tests in an 18-month period — anybody who does so faces a lengthy ban. The failure of a club to give the FA accurate information concerning the whereabouts of players is also prohibited.
QPR`s fine was imposed in December, a particularly turbulent month for the club with the departure of manager Jim Magilton and the arrival of Paul Hart, his short-lived successor. Bradford City`s penalty was imposed last month.
