The-31-year-old was arrested after an image of him taunting Sunderland fans with an image of their beloved Bradley went viral on social media.

It showed him holding a phone aloft featuring a photo of Bradley after Sheffield Wednesday lost 3-0 to Sunderland on Friday night.

Today, reporters waiting outside the front of the court to capture Houghton leaving scrambled to the rear of the building when it emerged that he would not be leaving out of the main entrance like most other defendants do.
