Vladimir Silivanos, 21, denies inflicting blunt force trauma on the one-year-old's head and body.

A man has appeared in court charged with assaulting a one-year-old girl to her severe injury.

Vladimir Silivanos is accused of inflicting blunt force trauma on her head and body between November and September 2017.

The 21-year-old allegedly failed to provide or procure medical assistance for the baby at a flat in Glasgow’s Wyndford area.

Silivanos also faces a charge of failing to appear for a court date in November 2018.

On Wednesday, he pleaded not guilty at Glasgow Sheriff Court to the assault and child neglect charges.

Silivanos also denied the failure to appear charge.

A further hearing was set for next month by sheriff Andrew Cubie.
