A former football manager has appeared in court accused of possessing an indecent picture of a child.
Gregg Carrol, who most recently managed Buckie Thistle, is alleged to have taken an indecent photograph of a child and also faces two charges relating to the possession of an indecent photograph of a child.
Carrol appeared from custody at Aberdeen Sheriff Court and made no plea. He was bailed until a later date.
A police spokesman said: “Grampian Police can confirm that 41-year-old man has been charged in connection with offences committed under the Section 52 of the Civic Government (Scotland) Act 1982.
“The man appeared from custody at Aberdeen Sheriff Court on July 19. As the matter is now the subject of live court proceedings, Grampian Police can make no further comment.”
Carrol was 28 when he was appointed at manager of Highland League side Deveronvale.
He led the Banff-based team to two league titles – narrowly missing out on a third to Fraserburgh - and an Aberdeenshire Cup.
In October 2008 he joined Buckie having left Deveronvale nine months earlier.
Carrol led Buckie to two league titles, missing out on a third, before announcing his retirement from football at the end of last season.
