Aberdeen manager Derek McInnes and his assistant Tony Docherty have been charged by the Scottish Football Association following the Scottish Cup semi-final defeat to Celtic.
The Aberdeen boss was sent to the stands during the game, which Celtic won 3-0, after appearing to react to alleged sectarian abuse from a group of rival fans.
Docherty, who was sent off at half-time, has accepted a fixed offer of a one-match suspension, but McInnes has until April 25 to respond, with his hearing date set for May 3.
Former Rangers player McInnes claimed that he had been targeted with sectarian abuse during the match that saw the Dons finish with nine players after Dom Ball and Lewis Ferguson were dismissed.
After the game at Hampden Park, he said: "I shouldn't react, I should be better than that.
"I let it go the first time. I didn't the second time, but it'll be interesting to see if everyone gets punished for me.
"I've heard the song hundreds of times sung at me and I haven't reacted. I think the frustration of the game has played a part in that."
McInnes also questioned the decision-making of the officials: "The fourth official deemed my reaction a red card offence. If it is it is, I'll take my punishment.
"The role of the fourth official sometimes is to give you a warning, a chance to let (referee) Craig Thomson know what I reacted to. But it fell on deaf ears.
"I don't want to say any more, it's up to everyone else to say their bit."
