Kilmarnock winger Jordan Jones has been issued with a fast track notice of complaint by the SFA following his alleged dive against Dundee.
Jones went down during the second half of Killie's game at Dens Park to win a penalty, which was converted to condemn Dundee to a 2-1 defeat.
The 23-year-old's hearing has been arranged for Thursday afternoon. If his charge is proven, he faces a two-match ban.
Dundee's defeat left them bottom of the Scottish Premiership, and their manager Neil McCann made no effort to hide his anger at the referee's decision to award Kilmarnock the penalty.
He said: "To say I'm aggrieved is an understatement. I'm absolutely furious. It's an emotional game when you're a manager and right now I feel pretty sick.
"My boys didn't deserve that. It's a pivotal moment because again we have to come from behind and it's changed the whole outcome.
"The decision was a disgrace and it's hard for me to control my emotions.
"The defining thing for me was that he's (Jones) told boys in my team he has taken a dive. I asked the boy himself as he came off the pitch at the end. He just shook my hand but didn't answer me."
