Two footballers have been arrested in connection with the alleged attack on Celtic goalkeeper Lukasz Zaluska in Glasgow.

Dundee United midfielder Paul Paton, 27, and former Stenhousemuir goalkeeper Chris McCluskey, 26, were arrested in connection with the assault of the Polish national in the early hours of 20 October.

Zaluska, 32, was allegedly attacked on Ashton Lane in the west end of Glasgow while on a night out with his wife. He is said to have suffered a head injury and blood loss during the incident.

Paton and McCluskey are due to appear at Glasgow Sheriff Court on 27 November to face the allegations.

Police Scotland said: "Two men aged 26 and 27 have been arrested. They have since been released.

"A full report will be sent to the procurator fiscal."

Dundee United defender Mark Wilson and St Mirren midfielder Jim Goodwin were also seen speaking to police following the incident.

Dundee United previously confirmed they had "commenced an internal investigation into the conduct of two of its players following information received by the club". Both players were left out of Dundee's 1-0 defeat to Caledonian Thistle at the weekend.

Paton signed for Dundee United from Partick Thistle last year and has made 47 appearences for the club.

Former Stenhousemuir keeper McCluskey is currently without a team.

Zaluska, who is second choice at Celtic behind Craig Gordon, signed for the club from Dundee United in 2009.

Former Celtic manager Neil Lennon was also attacked on Ashton Lane in September 2008 after his team beat fierce rivals Rangers 4-2.
