A former Dons star who was accused of attacking a dog walker at a park in Aberdeen has had the case against him dropped.
Aberdeen Football Club legend, Doug Rougvie, had been charged with assaulting 24-year-old Liam Baxter with a plastic ball thrower as both men walked their dogs near Stronsay Drive on February 19.
Mr Rougvie, 58, was charged by police and a report was sent to the Procurator Fiscal.
However the case never called in court.
Last night, a spokesman for the Crown Office said that after “careful consideration” of the facts and circumstances of the alleged assault, the fiscal had instructed that no proceedings against Mr Rougvie would be taken.
He added that the Crown could raise proceedings in the future.
Mr Rougvie was part of AFC’s victorious 1983 European Cup Winners team and won the Scottish Cup three times with the Dons in 1982, 1983 and 1984.
He was also a player and co-manager at Montrose and had a spell at Chelsea during his career.
