Ill With A Virus Or Ill With Worry

Peter Weatherson was ruled out of Saturday's match with Raith Rovers due to illness. Apparently he was suffering from a virus.

However, I just wonder if he was left out of the squad because he is due in court today and his head wasn't in the right place.

Peter is set to appear in Greenock Sheriff Court at some point today in regard to an alleged assault on Alex Coulter at Word Up in December of last year. The Scottish Sun reported the story and said that Weatherson was later detained by Traffic police. It added that Coulter was left with cuts and bruises to his face but declined hospital treatment.

Peter made a plea of not guilty according to the 23rd September editions of the Greenock Telegraph and Scottish Sun. The Sun added that Weatherson's solicitor, Alasdair Hendry, told Greenock Sheriff Court that there is a possiblity of a special defence of self defence being lodged. Peter is set to stand trial next month.
