Liverpool footballer Jon Flanagan assaulted girlfriend

Liverpool footballer Jon Flanagan has pleaded guilty to assaulting his girlfriend.

The 25-year-old defender appeared at Liverpool Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday accused of kicking Rachael Wall.

He was charged following an incident at 03:20 GMT in Duke Street, in Liverpool city centre, on 22 December. He will be sentenced later this month.

Liverpool-born Flanagan has made more than 50 first-team appearances for the club since making his debut aged 18.

The court heard he had been seen on CCTV assaulting his partner, who he has been in a relationship with for 18 months.

Lionel Greig, mitigating, said the victim had not provided a statement and there had been no previous instances of domestic violence in their relationship.

Both parties were under the influence of alcohol at the time, he added.
