A former Aberdeen FC goalkeeper has been banned from driving for the third time in less than a year.

Jason Brown, 31, admitted driving while disqualified in Aberdeenshire.

The offence was detected in July, Aberdeen Sheriff Court heard, after police received a tip-off.

The Welsh international, who left Pittodrie last year, was disqualified for a year and fined £730. The court was told he was now living off his savings.

He also admitted driving without insurance.

Defence agent Peter Shepherd said: "He apologises for his carelessness and ignoring a court order."

Sheriff Kenneth Watt said it was "more than" just ignoring a court order when looking at Brown's previous convictions for driving offences.
