Betting probe won't stop Motherwell from selecting Jennings

Despite being under investigation for alleged illegal betting, Steve Jennings will remain available to be selected by Motherwell.

The 26-year old former Everton youth was last week arrested in an investigation into irregular betting patterns stemming from a Motherwell game, in which Jennings was sent off for dissent, late last year.

Jennings has been bailed until January and whilst he inquiries are pending he will be able to continue his role as a central midfielder for the Steelmen.

"Motherwell Football Club have held discussions with both the Scottish Football Association and Scottish Premier League regarding the Merseyside Police investigation involving our player Steven Jennings," read a statement from the club.

"The club takes the matter very seriously but notes that our player has been released without charge.

"He remains available for selection and is an important member of our team and club.

"He will continue to assist in the police investigation and the board will continue to monitor the process.

"The club will not make any further statement on this matter at this time, nor will any member of our staff.

"The Scottish FA and SPL note our decision and we will keep them both closely informed of the situation as it affects us and our player."
