A DUNDEE football player was fined £400 after admitting a careless driving charge yesterday.

Declan McDaid was caught committing the crime in Glasgow's Maryhill on October 31, 2021.

The 26-year-old was behind the wheel of a BMW 1 series when he drove at excessive speeds.

Court papers state McDaid then failed to maintain proper control of the vehicle.

McDaid went on to strike and collide with an island on the road as well as traffic lights.

The lights and the vehicle were damaged as a result of the collision.

McDade pleaded guilty yesterday at Glasgow Sheriff Court to the single charge of careless driving.

He had been initially charged with dangerous driving.

The midfielder, of Dunoon, Argyll and Bute, was given four penalty points as well as the fine by sheriff Mark O'Hanlon.
