St Johnstone defender Brad McKay has been charged with making an "offensive comment" about Hearts striker Juanma.

The 22-year-old was widely quoted describing the Spaniard as "a typical foreigner" who "gets touched and goes down" after a 4-3 loss at Tynecastle earlier this month.

And the Scottish FA has now issued a notice of complaint.

McKay has until Monday to respond to the complaint, with a principal hearing scheduled for 3 September.

The SFA notice does not specify a sanction for the charge.

A blunder from former Hearts defender McKay gifted Juanma the opening goal on the opening weekend of the Scottish Premiership season.
