The BBC have decided to reduce Mark Lawrenson's role on Match of the Day. An announcement by the BBC did not include Lawro in the MOTD lineup for the coming season, leading to speculation that he had been dropped.

That may have been wishful thinking, however, as a spokeperson told the Telegraph that he would still appear on the show, just less often.

Lawro is something of a love him or hate him figure, and he'll rarely feature in lists of best pundits, but here are some of his more memorable moments.
