Ross County star faces disciplinary action after city ‘disturbance’

Johnny Foxes, Inverness.

A north football star is facing disciplinary action from his club following a weekend disturbance at an Inverness bar.

Ross County’s Iain Vigurs was allegedly at the centre of an incident at The Den nightclub, next to Johnny Foxes pub on the city’s Bank Street in the early hours of yesterday.

The Dingwall football club issued a statement last night confirming a player had been “apprehended” by police and that the matter would dealt by them “internally”.

Police Scotland could provide no details about the alleged incident.

Mr Vigurs was understood to have been out socialising with other footballers at the popular venue when he was asked to leave.

A disturbance is then believed to have occurred outside on the pavement.

Ross County Football Club’s operations manager David O’Connor said: “Ross County can confirm that we are aware one of our players was apprehended outside The Den in Inverness at the weekend.

“As this is an ongoing police investigation it would be inappropriate to make any further comment at this time.

“Clearly, the matter will be considered internally in line with the club’s disciplinary procedures.”

It is understood that 30-year-old Mr Vigurs – a former Caley Thistle player on two occasions – was asked to leave the club and there was a disturbance at the doorway.

The Den is a popular venue for footballers from both Caley Thistle and Ross County, as well as fans from both clubs.

The County team had just returned from Fife, having beaten Dunfermline 2-1 in a Championship match, keeping the club on top of the league.

Mr Vigurs was born in Aberdeen and attended Mackie Academy in Stonehaven.

He has played for Elgin City, Inverness Caledonian Thistle – twice – and Motherwell, as well as Ross County, also twice.

He rejoined the club last May.

Mr Vigurs has represented Scotland at under-19 level.
