The Scottish Football Association has banned Rangers midfielder Ian Black for at least three matches for betting on his own team's fixtures.

Between March 2006 and July, Black admitted betting on his team not to win three matches.

Black was also found to have bet on a further 10 matches involving his team over that period.

Black played for Inverness until 2009 before spending three years at Hearts before joining Glasgow club Rangers last year.

Although Black was handed a 10-match ban by the SFA, seven of them will only be served if he breaks the rules again this season.

He was only censured for betting on a further 147 matches.
