Celtic footballer Anthony Stokes has appeared in court charged with assaulting an Elvis impersonator.

The 25-year-old striker was charged at Dublin District Court after he allegedly left Anthony Bradley, 42, with a broken nost and chipped teeth

The court heard how the incident happened in June last year at Buck Whaley's nightclub in Stokes' home town Dublin and he was arrested by arrangement this afternoon.

Stokes made no reply to the charge, the officer told the court.

Judge Michael Walsh remanded Stokes on unconditional bail on his own bond of €1,000 and ordered him to appear again before the court on 29 May.

Judge Walsh asked Stokes to hand over details of his mobile phone to prosecuting authorities.

The Republic of Ireland international was first arrested and questioned last August about an alleged incident at a nightclub, hours after an international between Ireland and the Faroe Islands.
