Carrick Rangers have confirmed that they will contest a charge relating to manager Gary Haveron which could result in the club being relegated from the Premiership.

Carrick have been questioned over an alleged breach of Article 23.1 of the IFA Disciplinary Code over Haveron's presence within the technical area during their victory at Dungannon Swifts on 23 April.

If found guilty, the club would automatically lose the game 3-0, losing three points and resulting in automatic relegation in the process, alongside a further £350 fine.

Rangers said they would follow-up this statement after putting together a legal team.

If found guilty, Warrenpoint Town would be reprieved of their automatic relegation who would theoretically then go into a relegation/promotion play-off against Institute, ensuring that Ballinamallard United would be safe.

The confusion has been added to as Portadown must attend a further hearing over the registration of Peter McMahon.

Following a player registration sub-committee's investigation into player payment irregularities in April, the IFA's disciplinary committee has asked the Ports to attend another hearing, with further repercussions possible.
