I was recommended a TS pedal a while ago to boost my Laney's distortion, but I was wondering where in the chain one would be put. I guess it would go in front of the amp, but would you use the amp's overdrive and distortion channels, and then the TS to give it a boost and tighten it up OR, would you use the amps clean channel and use the TS's overdrive exclusively?

This is made all the more complicated by my Laney having two gain controls.

Any help would be appreciated, this matter confuses me greatly.

Put it in your distortion channel, keep the gain low, volume high to tighten the sound.
