Hibs player Ryan Porteous has been arrested and charged in connection with an alleged assault.

It comes after police launched an investigation into an incident at a miners club in Midlothian that allegedly left a woman injured.

The assault is alleged to have taken place outside Dalkeith Miners Club just hours after Porteous played in the club’s 2-0 Scottish Premiership win over Ross County at Easter Road.

The club previously said it was assisting police with their investigation.

A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “A 22-year-old man has been arrested and charged in connection with an assault.

“Around 2.05am on Sunday, February 20, 2022, police received a report of a woman being injured in the Woodburn Road area of Dalkeith.

“The 22-year-old man is subject of a report to the Procurator Fiscal. He has been released on an undertaking and will appear at a later date.”
