Rangers-supporting midfielder Steven Lawless has left rival Premiership club Motherwell by mutual consent after falling out of favour [Motherwellfc.co.uk].
Glasgow-born Lawless is a bluenose and he’s made his allegiance to Rangers clear on social media in the past.
In fact, he drew criticism from Motherwell fans just last month for a tweet that appeared to make reference to Rangers moving further ahead of Celtic in the league after the Hoops dropped points at home to Dundee United.
The 30-year-old, who began a second stint with the Steelmen in January after six months at Burton Albion, made six appearances under Graham Alexander during the early stages of the campaign.
However, he’d already slipped down the pecking order prior to his controversial tweet and hadn’t made a matchday squad for five Premiership fixtures in a row prior to his departure.
On Monday evening, the North Lanarkshire outfit confirmed that ‘the club and the player mutually agreed to end his current contract’, which had been due to run until the end of the season.
As a result of the timing of his departure, the versatile operator will be unable to join another Scottish club until the winter transfer window opens on 1 January.
