The dressing room #banter must be off the charts if that's what's on social media.

Nice wee piece on Mr Lawless on the Beeb's website. I like the sentiment but sometimes omerta is best. Don't ever tell anyone outside the family what you're thinking again.

Is there an echo?

I'll do the pedantry.

Jake Carroll has, unsurprisingly, been released from Huddersfield Town.

Great player. Wish we'd kept him longer.

My favourite moment was that one time when he crossed the ball and it didn't go out for a goal kick.

More assists than James Craigen this season.

But nah, he was honking. Back to the League of Ireland with him, I think.

Back page of the Sun tomorrow has Lawless being charged for betting on matches.

I'm aware loads of players do it, he's obviously been daft enough to get caught.

As much as I'm a fan of him, he's never struck me as being the sharpest knife in the drawer.

As long as he's not been a complete idiot and bet against his own team I couldn't really care less if he bets. I find it quite daft players can't be trusted to bet on games not involving the league they play in.

Hopefully the hearing is this season and they get the punishment out of the way so he's fine for next season if he signs a new deal.

Meanwhile the SPFL are trying to get Betfred to sponsor them. As long is it wasn't on any of our matches I really don't care

While I don't really care personally what players do with their money with regards to betting, it's been made so clear to them that it isn't allowed, it's just so stupid to get caught for it. But then like Hammer Jag says, he's not the smartest.

The rule that you can't bet on any games is a bit daft- can't imagine an East Fife player walking into the dressing room and saying "lads, just off the phone to Bastian Schweinsteiger, Bayern are going 3 at the back against Barca tonight, pile on the home team". The English rule where you're only banned from betting on competitions you’re involved in seems more sensible.

But

Every c**t knows the rules now and obviously he's been daft enough to get caught. Not exactly the worst time for him to get a ban, but if we hadn’t been safe I think I’d be raging at him.

Brains in his feet.

My late father used to do the pools. When I was wee I picked eight numbers for him and he used them for nearly 30 years. Anytime a coupon came in and a Jags match was on one of his numbers he knew his coupon was bust. Never bet for or against Thistle in anything at any time, was his advice.

Club statement on website.

“We are aware of the SFA’s intention to issue a notice of complaint to Steven Lawless with regards to betting on football matches. As a club we are in the process of conducting our own internal investigation and, until that and any SFA procedure is concluded, we will be making no further comment.”

​Simonsen got a two game ban which sets a precedent.

Depends if he bet on us or not. Michael Moffat got a 6 game ban, later reduced to 4.

Simonson's ban was immediate, so hopefully it gets resolved soon.
