SkySports News just reporting on this ongoing case. The woman is trying to claim £500,000 damages.

He's been pretty shit so far, but perhaps that isn't surprising given the circumstances.

Have to wait for judge, been ask to absolve the players

He said: "There are indications that the pursuer was acting out of character that evening and I say she acted out of character all evening."

Mr McIlvride said skilled evidence from expert witnesses in the case did not support a finding on the balance of probabilities that the woman was unable to consent.

Both solicitors asked the judge, Lord Armstrong, to absolve the players in the action.

The judge reserved his decision and will give a ruling at a later date.

FOOTIE RAPE TRIAL Rape-accused footie ace David Goodwillie loses £20k on sale of plush pad

The former Aberdeen striker, 27, wanted £360,000 for the five-bedroom detached pad — £1,000 more than he paid for it in 2013

But sale records reveal he flogged it for £340,000 to a woman who lives on the same street in Stirling.

It changed hands early last month, weeks before a £500,000 damages hearing brought by alleged sex attack victim Denise Clair, 30.

Denise, who waived her right to anonymity, claims Goodwillie and his former Dundee United teammate David Robertson, 30, assaulted her after a boozy night out.

Judges at the Court of Session in Edinburgh had ordered Goodwillie to set aside £100,000 from the sale as his legal bond.

The ace failed to overturn the ruling by claiming he would struggle to pay his legal fees, which could top £90,000, without the full proceeds.

He is said to earn £5,000 a month after tax with Plymouth Argyle.

I'm not supporting either side here but I can't get my head around the fact that there was no criminal trial but he is found guilty.
''Ms Clair, who previously waived her right to anonymity, said she could not remember what happened after being in a Bathgate bar and woke up in a strange flat the following morning''. But she must remember the bits required to convince the judge that her story was correct. Argyle have taken the only step they could in this situation.

He'll no doubt appeal it and it'll drag on. Not sure where Argyle stand legally as regards his contract ? Could he sue if we bin him?

Either way don't expect him to score many more any time soon.

He won't.

Currently suspended by the club.

The club need to be careful here. There was no criminal prosecution so there is no criminal record. I'm not sure that a civil prosecution that succeeds carries the same legal weight as a criminal one.

Civil isnt criminal so Argyle would have to look into it if they felt that a club like ours should do away with Goodwillie which is what i imagine they are doing by waiting to see the court summons.

I am chuckling a little bit reading some comments on a poor forum about our club being tarnished by having him here yet forget we have a convict drink driver who caused the deaths of 2 kids and paralysis another as our captain.

I fully expect goodwillie to be disposed off if they can do it without a payoff unless he appeals. I really hope the club think before they ssue a statement though for the already mention reasons.

Would it count as "gross misconduct"? I would imagine that most footballers have that in their contract somewhere.

Possibly but it didn't happen when he was employed by the club. Maybe bringing the club into disrepute?

I am sure the club will find some way to terminate his contract and free up some wages.

They would have known about the case before they signed him so i dont think they can claim that.

No we got two strikers out who have had long term injuries and needed more firepower upfront given goodwillie doesnt score bar last saturday and garitta is injury prone, rooney doesnt get a look in and slew and jervis are far better on the wings. if goodwillie goes we should replace him or finally give rooney a break while Spencer and Brunt return.
