Is he allowed to sign for another club given it was after the window closed?

You really want your pound of flesh dont you?

He doesnt have a contract now so he can sign for anyone who is interested in him.

Unless he's going to a league who have an open window he can't play for another club until the January window opens, no.

I suppose there's nothing to stop him provisionally signing for another club but they'd be paying him two and a half months wages to come into training and I don't think his player registration could be transferred until the next window opens anyway.

The transfer window only applies to transfers between clubs, so as his Motherwell contract has been cancelled he is now a free agent with no club and can therefore sign for any other club he likes at any time.

That would only apply if we had cancelled his contract before the last window shut. It's why you see as many players get their contracts mutually consented on deadline day to allow them to sign for a new club outside the window and also why it's fairly uncommon for players to mutually consent outside a window.

We didn't. He was still registered Motherwell player when the last window shut (he was literally in the team photo a fortnight ago).

So while yes, he's a free agent now he can't play for another club until January unless he moves to a club where their transfer window is open.

So he can't make his Rangers debut until January 2022 then?

 

* Berwick, Cove or Kilwinning...?!

Depends on what the script is with the Lowland League. Will he get a game for Rangers B?

If this is true, and Ive no reason to doubt it, why would Lawless agree to that? I wouldnt. He would effectively be agreeing to no wages until January, unless of course the club have paid up his contract until January to get him out the building.

I'd be surprised if there wasn't a severance package to tide him over until the next window.

I think it’s a certainty that there would have been some sort of ‘sweetener’ from the club to push his departure through.
 

And given that he never appeared to be too bothered about not playing regularly whilst still on our books then I doubt he’ll be that hung up on having a few months without a club. He’s 30/31(?) now anyway and probably heading towards lower league football, possibly even part time which he could probably make last for a few years yet with the right club so I can see why he would agree to a severance from us if that is indeed the case.

There must be. Otherwise he could just have developed a "Deccy like" back injury and sat out with wages until January or even the end of the season. At least this way he is not using up club training or physio resources. Can we forget about him now please?

Different tactics to the gun - looking for a different outcome right enough

1) wind your neck in, I have never said anything bad about him and even stuck up for him when he was spotted at the Rangers game. I was purely curious about whether or not he was allowed to sign for another club.

 

2) and it turns out I was right to be curious because despite what you and your petted lip seem to think, he’s actually not allowed to sign for another club.

Neck wound in! Apologies I was wrong!

Jake Hastie on the bench for Partick Thistle in tonight's televised game against Accies. Currently 4-0 Partick :lol:

Thistle scored 6 then brought on Hastie, didn’t score any more but lost one.

Our old friend Calum Lang was man of the match for the 4-0 victory for Wigan v Bolton, he scored one but was involved in the other 3 goals, Wigan looking good for automatic promotion.

Former Motherwell captain, Declan Gallagher was recalled to the Aberdeen starting 11 and helped cement a continuation of their most consistent run of results in years.

Sounds like Declan G done in his hamstring for Aberdeen in the match vs Hibs today.

Was he threatened with a contract extension?
