Strathclyde Police have detained and are currently questioning Stephen Maguire and Jamie Burnett as part of their investigation into the betting irregularities that surrounded their match in last season's UK Championship.
The police statement reads: "Strathclyde Police economic crime unit can confirm that two males aged 28 and 33 have been detained and are assisting Strathclyde police with their enquiries into the alleged irregular betting patterns associated with the snooker match involving Stephen Maguire and Jamie Burnett at the Maplin UK Championship on 14th december 2008.
"A report will be submitted to the procurator fiscal's office when enquiries are complete."
The BBC has confirmed that the two men are Maguire and Burnett.
Maguire won the match 9-3, a scoreline heavily backed in the days prior to their Telford meeting.
Burnett missed the final black with a chance to make it 8-4.
