FORMER Scotland and Hibernian striker Garry O'Connor has been charged in relation to alleged drugs offences after police were called to an incident at an off-licence in Edinburgh.

The 29-year-old who earlier this year signed a two-year contract with Tom Tomsk of Siberia, was recognised by officers attending a call-out to an incident at the store in Leith Walk in Edinburgh at around 10pm on Sunday.

No further complaint was made over the alleged incident.
