Ravel Morrison, one of the most promising young players on Manchester United's books, has again found himself in trouble with the authorities.

Morrison, 18, was not officially arrested but signed a statement admitting to the seriousness of a possible offence at Swinton police station.

It followed a complaint from the family of a teenage mugging victim who gave evidence against the player's friends. Morrison was said to have been hanging around outside the boy's college.

He admitted to two charges of intimidating a witness in relation to that original case and is the subject of a 12-month referral order. Any further offence could lead to a custodial sentence.

It is the second time he had been up before a court judge in the space of six months. He has also twice been arrested for domestic abuse - but not charged - and cautioned by the police for assaulting his mother.
