The English midfielder, 30, is accused of shouting and swearing at Ainsley McCrae, of East Kilbride, and turning up at her Glasgow city centre workplace unannounced.

He denied his guilt over the alleged offences when he appeared in the dock at Paisley Sheriff Court.

Bartley is banned from phoning or texting the woman as he awaits trial over her abuse claims.

Prosecutors claim he behaved in a manner which would be likely to cause a reasonable person to suffer fear or alarm.

He denied the offences when he appeared before Sheriff Tom Ward and the case was adjourned until next month for a pre-trial hearing to take place.

A trial is scheduled for April.
