Former Luton Town striker Ricky Miller has appeared before magistrates today to answer charges of assault following an incident after a night out in Milton Keynes.
Mr Miller, 26, faces five charges, including one offence of threatening or abusive behaviour towards former Luton Town player Brett Longden outside Pink Punters in Milton Keynes on April 27.
The four other offences relate to the alleged racial abuse and headbutting of taxi driver Mohammed Adnan, 27, in Hockliffe later that night.
Mr Miller, of Valence Road, Dunstable, was arrested immediately afterwards and later charged with the offences on June 3.
Today (June 25) at Luton Magistrates Court, Mr Miller pleaded not guilty to all five charges, electing a trial by jury at Crown Court.
Bail was granted with conditions. Mr Miller will next appear at Luton Crown Court on July 21.
