Here are the facts so far.
In last night’s Motherwell v Hearts game, Motherwell midfielder Steven Jennings was given a straight red card by ref Steve O’Reilly.
Jennings, who had already been given a yellow card earlier in the game, was sent off for a verbal assault on the ref for not awarding a penalty, followed by the player ‘touching’ O’Reilly.
The Association of British Bookmakers are now investigating irregular betting patterns concerning bets that a player would be sent off in the game. This outcome paid 10/1.
The ABB have reported their suspicions to the SFA
One bet made in a Liverpool bookmakers was believed to be for £500.
There has been no comment so far from the SFA, the SPL, Mr O’Reilly or the Liverpudlian Steven Jennings.
