Aberdeen footballer charged with ‘minor assault’ of Dundee United fan


Aberdeen midfielder Funso Ojo has been charged in connection with allegedly assaulting a supporter after the club’s match against Dundee United last month.

The alleged incident involves a corporate hospitality guest who gained access to a restricted area of Tannadice following the match on November 20, which Aberdeen lost 1-0.

In a statement, Aberdeen FC said: “The club is aware of the latest developments regarding an incident involving our player, Funso Ojo, and a corporate hospitality guest who gained unauthorised access to what is designated as a secure and restricted area of Tannadice Park after our match against Dundee United on Saturday, 20 November. 

“Frustratingly, we are not able to provide any further detail on the incident as this is now a matter for the Procurator Fiscal.

“The club is, however, offering its full support to Funso, who has fallen victim to circumstances not of his making.”

Ojo was also sent off during the Premiership clash at Tannadice for a separate incident involving a supporter when Ojo’s momentum took him into the advertising boards at the front of the Eddie Thompson Stand.

A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “A 30-year-old man has been charged in connection with a minor assault which took place inside Tannadice Park, Dundee, around 5pm on Saturday, 20 November, 2021.

“He will be reported to the Procurator Fiscal.”
