Football star faces stalking charge.

A former footballer has been accused of a two-year stalking campaign against his ex-partner.

Martin Hardie, who played for several Scottish clubs including St Johnstone and Dunfermline, faces a string of allegations including one claim that he climbed a drainpipe to spy on Kirsty MacLeod.

Hardie, 38, of Clydebank, is also said to have followed her to her work in Braehead shopping centre.

He denies stalking and is due to stand trial at Glasgow SheriCourt next month.

The allegations cover the period from September 2012 and November 2014.

Prosecutors claim Hardie left his ex in "fear or alarm".

The charge alleges that he also monitored Kirsty's movements, followed her to work and bombarded her with phone calls and texts.

He is also accused of turning up at her flat in Glasgow's Mansewood area, climbing a drainpipe and spying on her through a window.

Hardie was a fans' favourite at Partick istle before joining Kilmarnock in 2003.

He also turned out for Dunfermline, St Johnstone and Morton as well as two spells at Airdrie.
