Scottish Professional Football League (SPFL) star, David Goodwillie, has been accused of being involved in a betting scam that saw thousands of pounds in £50 notes stuffed in a bedside drawer.
Goodwillie, who plays for Dundee United, was arrested in October 2020 after police raided his home in Edinburgh. The raid was part of an investigation into a betting scam that had been going on for several months.
During the raid, police found a large amount of cash in £50 notes stuffed in a bedside drawer. The money was estimated to be worth around £20,000.
Goodwillie was released on bail and is currently awaiting trial. He has denied any involvement in the betting scam.
The case has caused a stir in the Scottish football community, with many fans and players expressing their shock and disbelief at the allegations.
The SPFL has also released a statement saying that it is taking the allegations seriously and is monitoring the situation closely.
The case has raised questions about the integrity of the SPFL and the potential for betting scams to occur in the league. It has also highlighted the need for greater regulation of betting in the sport.
The SPFL has already taken steps to address the issue, introducing a new code of conduct for players and clubs that prohibits betting on matches.
The case is still ongoing and it remains to be seen what the outcome will be. However, it is clear that the allegations against Goodwillie have caused shockwaves in the Scottish football community and have raised serious questions about the integrity of the SPFL.
