It is rife in the game and I don't think it will ever be eradicated. It is just the way it is up here and down south. It is something I have never been involved in or interested in.
Gambling doesn't appeal to me but it does appeal to a lot of players.
Clubs will have to educate players a lot more on the rules and regulations and the dangers of gambling.
How we do it, I don't know. Will it ever go away completely? I don't think so. It will always be part of the game and something that players do.
The focus will be on players more after what has happened this week with Ian Black and clubs will be looking closer at the subject and talking to their staff.
It is all about education. I don't know the best way forward. It can become a serious addiction for some people and they need help with it.
I have seen it happen. I was at a club and was injured at the time and trying to get myself back fit. I would go into the dressing room after watching the team play and there would be some players asking you what the score was in a certain game.
There was players who had just lost and all they were worrying about was their coupon.
It is something that will always be about unfortunately.
