That’s the gist of the allegations that were released tonight. Some reports suggest that there was a £500 bet placed in Liverpool.
Let the speculation begin!
The statement issued from the SFA reads…
Following information received from the Association of British
Bookmakers (ABB), we are aware of alleged betting irregularities
surrounding a sending-off incident in the Motherwell v Heart of
Midlothian match on Tuesday, 14th December, 2010.
At this stage, we are not in possession of the facts regarding the
allegations and are waiting for further information from the Scottish
Premier League in due course.
Once we are in possession of all of the facts we will be in a better
position to provide more detailed comment on the matter.
In the meantime, we will be working with our colleagues at the Scottish
Premier League to establish the details surrounding this incident.
