A MAN is to stand trial accused of injuring Rangers star Jermain Defoe by allegedly crashing into him.

James Turner, 24, is said to have drove dangerously in Balashgray Road, Jordanhill, Glasgow, last September.

Prosecutors claim Turner’s BMW M4 crossed a central reservation and collided with two vehicles on the opposing carriageway.

It is said the Peugeot 308 and Land Rover Sport then collided with a Mercedes-Benz A 200.

The incident allegedly “caused damage to said vehicles and injury to Jermain Defoe and Nicole Leonard.”

Defoe, 37, was in action that day having scored in a 5-0 win at Ibrox against Aberdeen.

A trial at Glasgow Sheriff Court was postponed today due to the coronavirus outbreak.

The case was dealt with administratively and a new trial date is set for October this year.

Turner, of East Kilbride, South Lanarkshire, has pleaded not guilty.
