Scotland footballer Robert Snodgrass has been cleared of illegally driving his car while a baby was being held by a passenger.

The 30-year-old Aston Villa player, who is on loan from West Ham, was charged with driving on Duke Street, Glasgow on April 17, 2015 with too many people to add a baby seat.

It was alleged that passengers in the car faced “a danger of injury”.

Snodgrass, originally from Glasgow, was cleared on Monday at the city’s Justice of the Peace Court.
