In the paper we study structure of soluble-by-finite groups of finite torsion-free rank which admit faithful modules with conditions of primitivity. In particular, we prove that under some additional conditions if an infinite finitely generated linear group $$$G$$$ of finite rank admits a fully primitive fully faithful module then $$$G$$$ has infinite $$$FC$$$-centre.
