Was there a red card scam?

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.
