Hearts avoid SPL points deduction

The Scottish Premier League board have decided against giving Hearts a points deduction at this time.

Ukio Banko Investicine Grupe (UBIG), run by Hearts owner Vladimir Romanov, is the majority shareholder at Hearts and last week declared insolvency stating it was unable to meet its liabilities.

The SPL board met to discuss the situation and could have been handed a points deduction and instant relegation, but they have ruled that an insolvency event in line with their guidelines has not happened, meaning there will be no punishment at this time.

A statement on the SPL website said: “The SPL Board met today to consider reports from Lithuania in respect of UBIG.

“The Board are not satisfied, on the basis of information currently
available to it, that an Insolvency Event (as defined by SPL Rules)
occurred in respect of UBIG during season 2012-2013.”
