PFA Scotland Awards bash ends in arrest for top dog Higdon



Fresh from being crowned PFA Scotland player of the year, Motherwell striker Michael Higdon, had been set to face the national media this morning for interviews and photo opportunities but this morning he faced the inside of a Police cell after he was arrested for an alleged assault at a local Glasgow nightclub.

The PFA Scotland awards bash took place at the five-star Glasgow Hilton hotel with the festivities brought to an end at the Corinthian Club on Ingram Street at the after show party, this is where the alleged assault reportedly took place.

A Police Scotland spokeswoman said: “A 29-year-old man is the subject of a report to the procurator fiscal in connection with an alleged assault at a nightclub in Ingram Street in Glasgow at 1.25am today.”

They later confirmed that Higdon was no longer in custody.

The 29-year-old Englishman scored 27 goals for Stuart McCall’s Motherwell side this term. He fended off competition from Hibernian striker Leigh Griffiths, Inverness Caley’s Andrew Shinnie and Aberdeen forward Niall McGinn for the coveted award.

Higdon joined Motherwell from St.Mirren in 2011 and has scored 43 goals in 80 appearances for the SPL side.

PFA Scotland were unavailable for comment this morning.
