It is understood that bookmakers Ladbrokes tipped off the SFA after Black allegedly placed a telephone bet on Rangers’ Ramsdens Cup trip to face Albion Rovers on July 28.
Ally McCoist’s side won the match 4-0 with Black on the scoresheet.
The SFA’s Disciplinary Rules 23 states: “No club, official, team official, other member of team staff, player, match official or other person under the jurisdiction of the Scottish FA shall knowingly behave in a manner, during or in connection with a match in which the party has participated or has any influence, either direct or indirect, which could give rise to an event in which they or any third party benefits financially through betting.”
Black moved to Ibrox in July 2012 after his deal at Hearts expired. He joined Inverness in 2004 and spent five seasons with the club.
If found guilty of breaching SFA rules, the governing body could fine Black anything from £500 to £1m and suspend or expel him from the game. MUSIC starlet Lady Gaga popped out to greet fans while promoting her new album in New York.
