Wigan silent on Gleeson’s future

    Martin Gleeson

    Gleeson struggled with a hamstring injury against St George Illawarra

    Wigan have refused to comment on speculation that centre Martin Gleeson has been sacked by the club for disciplinary reasons.

    Coach Michael Maguire and owner Ian Lenagan both had nothing to say on the matter after Wigan’s 32-16 win over Salford on Friday.

    Gleeson, 30, signed for the Warriors from Warrington in April 2009.

    Since then he has made 54 appearances, scoring 22 tries, including two in last year’s Grand Final win over St Helens.

    Gleeson, who has also played 20 times for Great Britain, has had a colourful career in the sport.

    In 2004, while with St Helens, he was given a four-month ban for his parts in a rugby league betting scandal which also involved then team-mate Sean Long.

    He was dropped by Wigan for a game against Huddersfield last season for disciplinary reasons.

    He played in last weekend’s World Club Challenge defeat to St George Illawarra Dragons at the DW Stadium but was hampered by a hamstring injury which had kept him out the squad for Friday’s game at Salford.
