Summoned: Sean Maitland

Four Scotland players are due to appear in court next month in connection with an alleged late-night Glasgow takeaway shop assault.

Two British and Irish Lions, Ryan Grant and Sean Maitland, have been summoned alongside Ryan Wilson and 20-year-old Scotland Sevens player Rory Hughes.

29-year-old Glasgow Hawks centre Ally MacLay was reportedly injured in the fracas, which is said to have broken out at a kebab house on the city's Great Western Road.

Grant, 28, and Maitland, 25, are currently on duty with Scotland as they prepare for their second November Test fixture against South Africa at Murrayfield on Sunday.

Both have been named in the 23-man squad to take on the Springboks.

24-year-old Wilson, currently sidelined through injury, has won four caps for his country. It is understood he reported to court last week.

A police spokeswoman said: "Three men aged 25, 28 and 20 are the subject of a report to the procurator fiscal as the result of an alleged serious assault and an assault."

All four players are contracted to Glasgow Warriors. A club spokesman said:

"As part of our own procedures we would always instigate an extensive internal inquiry into any allegations of player conduct falling below the high standards that are part and parcel of Scottish Rugby's ethos and values.

"We are continuing our own internal investigation into an alleged incident last month, while at all times co-operating fully with the authorities.

"The club will be making no further comment at this time."
