A MAN has been charged after a foot­baller was al­legedly as­saulted dur­ing an Aberdeen match. The Dons played Hearts in the Scot­tish Premier­ship on Satur­day and it is un­der­stood the man was in the Aberdeen sup­port­ers’ sec­tion of the sta­dium when the al­leged in­ci­dent took place. A Po­lice Scot­land spokes­woman said: “We have ar­rested and charged a man in con­nec­tion with the as­sault of a foot­baller dur­ing a match at Tynecas­tle Sta­dium in Ed­in­burgh. “The 47-year-old is due to ap­pear at Ed­in­burgh Sher­iff Court at a later date.” Around 1,500 Dons fans made the trip to the cap­i­tal for the game against the league lead­ers. Hearts won the match 2-1, de­spite a goal from Dons mid­fielder Gary Mackay-Steven.
