Dundee United manager Peter Houston is set to question a quartet of players following allegations of an early hours disturbance in Glasgow.

Two of them – David Goodwillie and Scott Allan – are understood to have spent the night in the cells as a result of the incident. Danny Swanson and Barry Douglas were apparently also present when the altercation took place.

As a result, midfielder Allan was charged with assault when appearing on Thursday along with two other men at Glasgow Sheriff Court, according to the Crown Office.

“I do not wish to make any comments which may be construed as prejudicial as far as the specific incident is concerned,” Houston told the Arabs’ official website.

“However, I will be both disappointed and angry if it transpires that my players allowed themselves to be put in a position whereby they became involved in a disturbance in the early hours of the morning, when they should have been home in bed.”
