Jefferies: Thomson Scot stay impossible

Hearts manager Jim Jefferies believes shamed former defender Craig Thomson's career in Scotland is over, although there is speculation the club's owner Vladimir Romanov could offer the player a move to one of his other clubs, FBK Kaunas in Lithuania or MTZ-Ripo in Belarus.

• Thomson leaves Hearts
• SPL eyes distance from saga

Thomson, who was forced out of the Edinburgh club on Sunday having initially been backed by Hearts after he pleaded guilty, was fined and placed on the sex offenders register last month in relation to his inappropriate conduct towards two underage girls over the internet.

That original decision prompted a huge outcry, with many people calling on Hearts to sack the player while one of the club's backers - MacB Water - withdrew their support as official water sponsor of the Jambos, a deal worth more than £5,000.

Jefferies had regularly expressed his concern about the furore that has engulfed the club recently and believes that it will be "impossible" for Thomson to continue to play football in Scotland.

"It has made it impossible for him to continue in this country. All the signs are he wants to stay in football, but it will have to be done elsewhere," Jefferies told the Scottish Sun:

"The boy has paid for being very silly, but he's brought this on himself. It will be a hard lesson for him and now he'll have to resurrect his career elsewhere.''
