Plead not guilty and say the other guy made a sectarian comment .... works for Lennon.

What do you mean? He’s been the victim of sectarian assaults (plural) and bullets through the post. Are you suggesting it’s fabrication?

Motherwell manager Stephen Robinson is to stand trial next month accused of assaulting his partner.

Robinson, 45, appeared at Edinburgh Sheriff Court on Thursday charged with allegedly grabbing Robyn Lauchlan and pinning her against a fence at the city's Waverley Bridge.

He also faces a breach of the peace allegation relating to the incident on 13 December.

The Northern Irishman has pled not guilty to both charges.

"I continue to deny any wrongdoing and look forward to having the chance to clear my name at trial," Robinson said in a statement.

He is alleged to have assaulted Ms Lauchlan by seizing her by the body, pushing and pulling her by the body and pushing her back and pinning her against a fence or similar at Waverley Bridge, Edinburgh, on 13 December.

Robinson is also accused of behaving in a threatening or abusive manner by shouting, swearing and acting in an aggressive manner during the same incident.

In a statement last month, Police Scotland confirmed nobody was injured during the "disturbance".

The Fir Park manager, who has been in charge of the Scottish Premiership's third-placed side for three years, will appear for another hearing next month with his trial scheduled for 27 February.

A spokesperson for Motherwell said: "Motherwell Football Club is fully aware of the circumstances of the alleged incident and the not guilty plea made by Stephen.

"We will respect the legal process and refrain from making further comment at this time."

Apparently was getting hassle from  couple of drunk fans enjoying the festival and ‘grabbed’ his wife to leave and they reported it to police and as there was more than one person saying it they had to charge him. Allegedly.

Sounds like the kind of story a s**t lawyer would make up.

Who knows. I’m not a lawyer. Was merely saying what was doing the rounds.

Robinson has previous for dodgy behaviour. Wasn’t too long a bullying claim was made against him. 
 

If he is grabbing his wife in public by the hair and neck then I hate to imagine what goes on behind closed doors.

Is due an apology from a few on this thread. 

 

Motherwell manager Stephen Robinson has been acquitted of assaulting his partner in Edinburgh last year.

Mr Robinson, 45, was on trial at at Edinburgh Sheriff Court accused of assaulting Robyn Lauchlan on Waverley Bridge on 13 December.

The football manager had denied the charges against him.

Ms Lauchlan earlier told the trial he had been trying to calm her down while she was upset and she had asked prosecutors not to bring charges.

Sheriff John Cook said it was quite proper that the Crown had brought the matter to court but he was not satisfied beyond reasonable doubt that the alleged offences had taken place.

It had been alleged that Mr Robinson grabbed Ms Lauchlan, pushed and pulled her and pinned her against a fence on Waverley Bridge, next to the Edinburgh Christmas markets.

The 45-year-old was also accused of behaving in a threatening or abusive manner by shouting, swearing and acting aggressively.

 

But Mr Robinson told the trial he had never been abusive to his partner and said he found the idea "disgusting".

Giving evidence at Edinburgh Sheriff Court, the former Northern Ireland international said: "My sole intention was just to calm her down and get her home safely."

The trial had previously heard from Ms Lauchlan that she was distressed because her partner did not intervene when a man who had been speaking to him in a city centre bar told her aggressively to "shut up".

She said "I thought: 'Why is (Stephen) not saying anything to this man who has just ridiculed me in front of everyone and Stephen has allowed him to do it?"'

But the 28-year-old said she was "drunk and behaved like an idiot" and claimed Mr Robinson was "paying the price" for this.

In her evidence, Ms Lauchlan also criticised domestic abuse laws and told the trial that prosecuting her partner was "unfair and wrong".

 

Mr Robinson told the court he had no previous convictions and had never assaulted Ms Lauchlan.

He said that when Ms Lauchlan later saw him at Waverley railway station she walked over and "gave me a big kiss and cuddle".

He told the trial: "She looked as if she had calmed down. My priority was to make sure she was getting home safely."

Mr Robinson said he was "used to things" like the earlier incident in the bar, but became exasperated by her reaction.

He added that he wanted to calm her down and had raised his voice and swore.

The court heard Ms Lauchlan wrote several letters to the procurator fiscal asking for the charges to be dropped, including one criticising domestic abuse law.

"It terrifies me how easy it is to ruin someone's life with this new law in place," she wrote.

In a statement after the case concluded, Ms Lauchlan said: "In no shape or form have I ever been a victim of domestic abuse. At no stage did Stephen push, shove or frighten me. He did not do the things he was accused of.

She added: "The stress this has caused both of us, and our families, is impossible to emphasise enough. It has taken an immeasurable toll on our lives all because the system has failed us both."

Reading all the accounts it sounds like both of them could easily have been convicted of rank stupidity if that had been a criminal offence.
