Simpson ´fine´ after late-night scuffle

4 February 2013 11:07

Newcastle defender Danny Simpson is set to return to training on Monday having suffered no ill-effects from an alleged altercation in Manchester.

The former Manchester United trainee had been at a nightclub with friends including Red Devils duo Tom Cleverley and Danny Welbeck before allegedly leaving alone.

The scuffle is said to have happened at a takeaway, with witnesses present telling The Sun that the 26-year-old looked liked he'd 'had a few' and 'was definitely drunk'.

Simpson was photographed, apparently unconscious, on the floor outside.

Police arrived at the scene after hearing reports of an assault but say a man with minor injuries did not wish to make a complaint.

An ambulance spokesman also confirmed that a man was taken to Manchester Royal Infirmary.

Simpson's spokesman said: "Danny's fine and will be back training tomorrow."
