Teenager faces player assault trial
A TEENAGER is due to stand trial for allegedly assaulting former Rangers player Dean Shiels at the Scottish Cup final last year.
Greig Binnie, 19, allegedly acted aggressively towards the player and “uttered abusive remarks” towards him at Hampden Park.
The alleged offence is contrary to the Offensive Behaviour at Football Act.
Binnie from Ratho, Edinburgh, is also accused of assaulting Shiels by “seizing hold” of the player.
He appeared yesterday at Glasgow Sheriff Court, where he denied the charge.
A trial is set for next month.
