A Rangers star accused of careless driving had his trial postponed until next year.

Kemar Roofe, 29, allegedly committed the offence in Glasgow’s Govan area on March 18, 2021.

Court papers state the Jamaican international striker drove without due care or attention behind the wheel of a black Audi RS6.

It is stated Roofe undertook several vehicles and re-entered the lane causing other drivers to brake harshly to avoid a collision.

Roofe is also charged with the registration mark of his car not being fixed on the vehicle. It is stated this was displayed on the windscreen.

He is further accused of not having the correct details on his licence, failing to surrender it to the Secretary of State and failing to provide the particulars of the alterations in the name and address on it.

His final two charges allege that he used the motor vehicle without a test certificate and that the registered keeper’s address was out of date.

Roofe, of Bearsden, East Dunbartonshire, last played for the Gers in their UEFA Europa League final defeat to Eintracht Frankfurt.

Justice Morag Wilson set a trial in May for this week which did not go ahead. A new trial has been set for Glasgow’s Justice of the Peace court in January next year.
