There is a lot of scrutiny in football just now with regards to betting. Allegations of corruption have been made in a number of European countries in recent years Finland probably being the most high profile - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-13736085

 

However in England last week Stoke City player Cameron Jerome was fined for gambling on football http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/football/teams/stoke-city/10241957/Stoke-City-striker-Cameron-Jerome-fined-50000-for-breaching-FA-betting-rules.html West Ham were involved in spread betting a number of years ago, betting on who would get the first throw-in for example and then kicking the ball straight out from the kick-off.

 

It seems certain that matches in Germany and Turkey were 'fixed' as well as some international fixtures - http://www.spiegel.de/international/world/uefa-and-fifa-have-failed-in-their-efforts-to-combat-match-fixing-a-881592.html

 

Now I'm not suggesting Ian Black was fixing matches, however as soon as a player bets on a match involving his team he leaves himself open to suspicion. To think that it couldn't happen here is naive, particularly in the lower leagues.

 

If it transpires Black bet on a match involving Rangers and he didn't bet on us to win he should never play for us again.

of course. like who/where did they get this info from? as I said looks like someone has been storing this up over a period of time & waited for their moment. who?

if I were Ian Black I'd be getting legal advice pronto. This looks like someone has literally been spying on him

 

So are you more concerned with the player's privacy or the fact he might have been making money from Rangers losing?

Couldn't agree more. This is the height of stupidity and he's done little demonstrate his value to the team over the last year. You can bet if you want to but you don't bet against your own team. There are plenty of other bet outs there.

the fact that it goes back to 2006 is the interesting part. Someone must have compiled this over a period of time and waited for their moment to produce this ? who?

 

They could also be breaking data protection laws here.

It's all about his Ladbrokes account.

Absolutely but if he bet against any team he was playing for and they didn't win he shouldn't play for us again. He could have paid off other players to play badly and/or get sent off/give away a penalty etc etc.

 

If this is true, he's a liability and we've got enough liabilities right now without one as stupid as that.

Disciplinary Rule 22 (Rule 33 in updated Judicial Panel Protocol for season 2013/14):No club, official, Team Official or other member of Team Staff, player, match official or other person under the jurisdiction of the Scottish FA shall bet in any way on a football match (except authorised and registered football pools).

 

Sure if your throwing the match. My bet is most footballers secretly put a coupon on.

 

Well if you're correct there's a lot of Scottish football players will be shitting themselves tonight.
