ST JOHNSTONE manager Steve Lomas is facing claims that he sexually harassed a former club receptionist.

Carole Dunn is taking the SPL club where she worked for 11 years to an ­employment tribunal – and Lomas is expected to be one of the main witnesses.

Ms Dunn, 48, was put on gardening leave by St ­Johnstone after she lodged a formal complaint stating that Lomas had subjected her to sexual harassment.

She no longer works at the Perth club and has lodged papers to take St Johnstone to a tribunal for unfair dismissal and sexual discrimination.

A pre-tribunal hearing is set to take place later this month in Dundee, where it will be decided what witnesses will be called.

But sources say it is almost certain that Lomas, 38, will be called to give evidence if the case goes ahead.

Ms Dunn, from Perth, did not want to comment when approached by the Record.

But a club source said: “Carole’s position is that the manager behaved in an extremely inappropriate way towards her, which amounted to harassment of a sexual nature.

“It could be very embarrassing for the club if the tribunal finds in her favour.

“She was put on home leave and has now left St Johnstone.

“She will say at the tribunal that the club did not take her report of harassment ­seriously enough.”

Mother-of-two Ms Dunn’s photograph was on the St Johnstone website along with other staff but was recently taken down.

The website read: “Carole is the first point of contact for most people visiting McDiarmid Park and has been with the club since 2001.

“As well as duties in and around reception, Carole is responsible for the booking system for the club’s synthetic playing surface facility.”

Lomas hung up the phone when the Record called to ask him about the ­forthcoming tribunal.

And the club themselves refused to comment.

St Johnstone are bottom of the SPL after failing to win any of their opening five games.

Lomas joined the club in November 2011 on a two-and-a-half year deal after Derek McInnes quit as manager to join English Championship club Bristol City.

Lomas, a former captain of Northern Ireland who scored three goals in 45 appearances for his country, played for Manchester City, West Ham and Queens Park Rangers during his career.

He could be charged with bringing the game into disrepute chasing after women and would have been safer following the example of Paedo FC.

Saints fans I know from my days at school have been hankering after getting rid of him since the summer. Yes, the same guy who completed the job of getting them a jolly in Turkey.

To be honest the team's been rank for months and hasn't won a match since March or something - doing its best to nearly blow the European place. Only Hearts winning the cup guaranteed it. That would put you off Lomas without needing any other reason. His constant blaming of budgets and stuff doesn't help.

But there have been all sorts of rumours about Lomas this summer which in the absence of any facts, grew arms and legs, and indeed got pretty nasty. This was clearly going on at the club and so nobody could comment - and the longer that went on, the more people made things up.

However amongst most Saints fans I know, the most heinous 'rumour' about Lomas is that he "sang the Sash in a Perth pub". There even purport to be recordings of it, although nobody's ever actually seen or heard one. I believe it to be nonsense - but it shows the hatred for all things considered close to Rangers at this point in time.

Compared to some of the other urban myths which if true would get someone jailed for a long time, singing a song was rather tame.

Had 3 ST J players in the taxi a few weeks ago and they hated him. Also told me to bet him to be the first manager to leave the SPL before Christmas. And before anyone starts"why would they tell a stranger this " I know one of the players

Ha ha, you are referring to the Jeremy Thorpe and Norman Scott poofery trial when Scott said that he had to bite the pillow when Thorpe was rogering him. The joke going around at that time was:

"What have Captain Kirk and Jeremy Thorpe got in common?

They both get full thrust out of Scotty!". :)

I'd suggest that this has now been released to the media deliberately in order to facilitate his swift departure.

I'm merely pointing out how much of an anti-Rangers attitude exists even towards an SPL club's own manager. To the extent that rumoured singing of a Rangers-associated ditty, was considered worse than some pretty salacious other stuff that got a mention.

Total nonsense (as is your point about someone singing rebel songs, by the way).
