Shamed footballer Craig Thomson has been training with Gorebridge side Arniston Rangers.

The 22-year-old former Hearts star was placed on the sex offenders register three years ago for preying on under age girls online.

Thomson, who lives in Bonnyrigg, never played for the Tynecastle club again and was sent on loan to Lithuanian clubs Kaunas and Sudava.

Arniston Rangers Community Club’s secretary Alan Walker declined to comment when approached by the Advertiser, but confirmed Thomson had trained there.
