Dundee FC midfielder Paul McGowan was arrested following an alleged assault outside a city nightclub.
The 30-year-old former Celtic player was arrested outside the Underground nightclub on South Tay Street around 2am on Monday.
A Police Scotland spokesman said: “Police Scotland can confirm that a 30-year-old man was arrested in South Tay Street, Dundee, shortly after 2am on Monday morning in connection with an alleged assault.
“He was charged and released on an undertaking to appear at Dundee Sheriff Court at a later date, and a report is to be sent to the procurator fiscal.”
McGowan and his team-mates had attended the club’s player of the year celebrations earlier on Sunday evening.
McGowan, who has also played for Hamilton and St Mirren, was signed by former Dens Park boss Paul Hartley in 2014.
He has made 130 appearances for the Dark Blues and scored six goals.
