Arrest In Edinburgh Over Alleged Football Abuse

A former youth football scout has been arrested by police investigating allegations of historical abuse in the sport.

The 84 year old is said to have worked for clubs including Rangers, Liverpool and Chelsea during his career, and has been arrested by police in Edinburgh.

Police Scotland joined forces across the UK last year in launching an investigation after allegations of historical abuse in football were made public.

The SFA has also set up an independent review.

A Police Scotland spokeswoman said: "An 84-year-old man has been arrested and charged with a number of non-recent sexual offences and a report will be submitted to the procurator fiscal.''
