Dundee United footballer Nadir Ciftci has been fined £360 after he admitted to driving at 97mph.

The Turkish striker had picked up the keys to his new Mercedes C-series shortly before he was caught speeding on the M90 Perth to Inverkeithing road on 14 October.

The 22-year-old was fined and had four penalty points put on his licence at Perth's Justice of the Peace court, but avoided a driving ban.

He was not in court for the sentencing.
