Thomson in charge of final fixture

Referee for Saturday’s final league match of the 2016/17 season is Craig Thomson – as the Steelmen travel to Inverness.

The 44-year old takes charge of his fourth Motherwell fixture of the season, after the league opener against Kilmarnock at Rugby Park, the Steelmen’s 1-1 draw away to Partick Thistle in September and the crushing Scottish Cup defeat against Rangers at Ibrox.

One of the top Scottish referee’s in the game, Thomson has been in charge of a number of Ladbrokes Premiership clashes this season as well as officiating in the UEFA Champions League and World Cup Qualifiers.

Of the three matches he refereed in Europe’s premier club competition, one match saw him oversee last year’s finalists Atlético Madrid who took on Rostov.

His record in charge of the Steelmen is a bit of a mixed bag with 16 wins from 48 matches. There have been 22 defeats and ten draws too.

Not included in that list was the 2007/08 Scottish Cup fourth round replay win against Hearts at Fir Park, when he replaced the injured Stuart Dougal midway through the second-half.

In those games, Motherwell have scored 67 and conceded 70.

168 players have gone into the book, 86 were wearing claret and amber, while seven players, including former and current captains Stephen Craigan and Keith Lasley, have been dismissed. The most recent was Stephen McManus in the away defeat to this weekend’s opponents Inverness.

Craig will be ably assisted by Dougie Potter and Jordan Stokoe; with Kevin Graham on fourth official duties.
