Police were called to Scottish club Cowdenbeath on Monday after a suspicious package was delivered.

Officers went to Cowdenbeath's Central Park ground but were later stood down.

Police said the package had been addressed to club chairman Donald Findlay QC - one of Scotland's top lawyers and a former vice-chairman of Rangers.

A spokesman for Fife Constabulary later confirmed that the package contained a knife.

The force said the item had been designed to alarm Mr Findlay and confirmed a police presence had been required.

The club said it would not be commenting at this time.

Cowdenbeath FC were recently relegated to the Scottish Football League Second Division.
