Stag­gies sus­pend mem­ber of staff

The Press and Journal (Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire) - - NEWS -

A mem­ber of staff at one of the north’s most suc­cess­ful foot­ball clubs is at the cen­tre of a po­lice in­ves­ti­ga­tion into in­de­cent com­mu­ni­ca­tions.

Ross County has sus­pended an em­ployee fol­low­ing a com­plaint which is be­ing in­ves­ti­gated by po­lice.

The Scot­tish Cham­pi­onship club, which has pre­vi­ously played in the top flight, yes­ter­day posted a state­ment on­line which read: “We can con­firm that a mem­ber of staff has been sus­pended from work as a re­sult of a com­plaint be­ing re­ceived.

“The mat­ter was re­ferred to the po­lice and there­fore it would be inap­pro­pri­ate to make any fur­ther com­ment at this time.”

At this stage it is un­der­stood that the mem­ber of staff has not been ar­rested or charged with any of­fence and the in­ves­ti­ga­tion is on­go­ing.

A spokesman for Po­lice Scot­land said: “Po­lice Scot­land can con­firm it has re­ceived a re­port and in­quiries are on­go­ing. As such, it would be inap­pro­pri­ate to com­ment fur­ther.”
