Share This Story



A Rangers player has been charged by police in connection with making alleged sectarian remarks during a night out.

Goalkeeper Grant Adam - the brother of Liverpool and Scotland midfielder Charlie Adam - is alleged to have committed the offense early on Sunday morning in Glasgow.

Strathclyde Police say they ''can confirm a 20-year-old male has been charged in connection with an alleged sectarian breach of the peace.''

Adam, who is third-choice goalkeeper at Rangers, is expected to appear in court Monday.

Rangers is traditionally supported by the Protestant community in Glasgow and has an intense rivalry with Celtic, which is followed by the Catholic community.

Rangers has been fined on a number of occasions by UEFA for sectarian chanting by fans.
