A warrant has been issued for the arrest of Celtic star Morten Rasmussen on a speeding charge.

The Danish striker was due to appear at Glasgow District Court on Monday after being stopped in London Road, near Celtic Park, in April.

When he failed to turn up JP Louisa Ross agreed to issue a warrant.

She was told by depute fiscal Marie-Claire Anderson: "The accused does not reside at the address we have and his present whereabouts are unknown."

Mr Rasmussen is charged with driving in his Audi car at 43mph in a 30mph area of London Road on 15 April this year.

He was signed by former Celtic manager Tony Mowbray in January this year for £1.8m from Bronby.
