Hamilton Academical have stated they will take "full responsibility" and confessed their deepest disappointment after their player was involved in a serious incident. 

Kyle MacDonald pleased guilty to two sexual assault charges last month - both related to a night out at Glasgow's Wunderbar in September 2023. 

Yet it was revealed the midfielder featured for Accies during a Scottish Championship play-off victory over Inverness Caledonian Thistle just days later. 

Hamilton claim the man involved has shown remorse for his actions and going forward they will clamp down on such horrific behaviour.
