Have your say

Former Sheffield United defender Paul McGrath was arrested over the weekend over alleged public disorder offences.

The 53-year-old former Blade, who played for United in 1997 and 1998, was arrested outside a hotel in Co Offaly, Ireland, on Saturday afternoon, after complaints were made that a man was being loud and annoying others in the area.

McGrath, a former Ireland international, was taken to a local garda station where he was charged.

He was bailed to appear at court on Wednesday, July 17.
