Rangers player Kirk Broadfoot in assault arrest

A Rangers player was arrested in connection with an alleged assault in Ayr at the weekend, it has been confirmed.

Scotland international defender Kirk Broadfoot, 25, was stopped by police after an incident in Gartferry Court, Ayr, on Sunday.

He is due to appear at Ayr Sheriff Court later this month.

Broadfoot signed for Rangers in 2007 after moving from St Mirren. The club did not comment on the matter.

A Strathclyde Police spokesman said: "A 25-year-old is the subject of a report to the procurator fiscal in connection with an alleged assault and breach of the peace following an incident at Gartferry Court in Ayr on Sunday."
