Former Dundee United footballer Gary Mackay-Steven is recovering from hypothermia after being rescued from a river in Glasgow.
The Scottish Sun said the Aberdeen player was pulled from the River Kelvin by a fireman in the early hours of Sunday.
His club confirmed the incident on Monday morning and said the winger is now recovering at home.
An Aberdeen spokesman said: “The club can confirm Gary Mackay-Steven was involved in an incident in the River Kelvin on Sunday morning.
“He was treated for hypothermia but is now at home and recovering well.
“On behalf of Gary, the club extends its thanks to the emergency services involved.
“The club will not be commenting further on the matter.”
The 26-year-old was on the bench for the Dons’ 4-3 victory over Glasgow side Partick Thistle on Saturday and is believed to have been at a nearby nightclub with a fellow player on Saturday before the river rescue.
A spokesman for the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service told the newspaper: “At 2.46am on Sunday, August 27 the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service was alerted to reports of a man in the water at the River Kelvin near Benalder Bridge in Glasgow.
“Four appliances attended and specialist water rescue crews safely assisted the individual out of the water – he was then transferred into the care of paramedics after suffering the effects of hypothermia.
“Firefighters ensured the area was safe before leaving the scene.”
Police Scotland said the casualty was taken to Queen Elizabeth University.
