Blackburn Rovers striker David Goodwillie's trial begins today.

Goodwillie is accused of attacking a man in a city centre street.

The 22-year-old Scotland international denies punching John Friel, 23, on the head and body on November 3 last year in Glasgow's Queen Street.

He submitted a not guilty plea to the charge by letter at a hearing at Glasgow Sheriff Court in August.

Goodwillie, from Stirling, moved from Dundee United to Blackburn this summer for a fee of more than £2million.
