Before he signed with us i'm reading? but still silly when he knew the rules. If they have proof he betted on games he was playing in, he's fooked, If not and it's just spread betting then a fine and a ban imo.

 

The charges cover the period between 15/01/14 and 13/01/15, and he signed for us 13/09/13 acc. to Wiki.

 

Oh, dear. Tbh I assumed the complaint was about his ability & lack thereof but if the SFA started down that route they'd have to haul up pretty much our entire squad.

Ian Black should have been sent home if we had any credibility . His offence was much worse than dafty boy Sandanza. So now we have another space cadet that doesn't get it . If he's found guilty get him binned and get an under 21 in . Sick of people on the payroll and in the Blueroom just kicking lumps out of us .
