Queen of the South striker Derek Lyle has denied a charge of threatening violence towards staff in a Dumfries pub.

The 33-year-old, of Bishopbriggs, is alleged to have committed the offence in the Flesher's Arms last October.

He also denied making similar threats in the custody area at nearby Loreburn Street police station.

The case at Dumfries Sheriff Court was continued to a further intermediate calling in two weeks' time.

The forward has been back at the Scottish Championship side since 2012.

Prior to that he has had spells with a number of clubs including Hamilton, Morton and Dundee.
