Craig Thomson Suspended By Hearts.

Hearts have suspended defender Craig Thomson after being convicted of indecent behaviour regarding underage girls on the internet.

Thomson was also placed on the sex offenders register for his actions which have sparked outrage throughout Scottish football.

The Hearts board came to a decision to keep Thomson employed by the club despite his conviction but after various complaints were made by fans the board moved and quickly suspended him which will most likely see the end of his career in Edinburgh.

The club will be able to terminate the players contract if they wish because I think there is a sort of insurance policy in there that prevents the players getting money for the termination of contracts in events of convictions.

Sponsers have also terminated their deals with the club after their decision to defend Thomson.

I personally see this as the right move by the club despite it coming too late. The abuse he would get from the fans would be unreal aswell.

So,would you be happy to see a registered sex offender playing for your club or in your league?
