Sky Sports News understands that Rangers duo Barry Ferguson and Allan McGregor have been sent home from training.
The news comes after the pair were dropped from the starting line-up for Scotland's crucial World Cup qualifier against Iceland in midweek.
Scotland manager George Burley benched his skipper and his Gers team-mate after it was discovered that both had been involved in a drinking session after the 3-0 defeat to Holland on Saturday.
However, the controversy did not end there after both players were then photographed on the bench allegedly making obscene gestures in front of a packed Hampden Park crowd.
Scotland coped well without the pair as they went on to win 2-1 to keep their World Cup dream alive.
After the game, Burley said Ferguson could reclaim the captaincy in the future and stated both players still had a role to play in the qualifiers.
The SFA subsequently vowed to introduce a 'code of conduct' for the players in the wake of the incident, while the association's president George Peat wants a full investigation into the matter.
