Mr Drummond faces four charges
A former chairman and secretary of Dundee Football Club has appeared in court charged with embezzling more than 84,000 from a firm of solicitors.

Andrew Drummond, 39, made no plea at the High Court in Stirling.

Mr Drummond is accused of embezzling 52,571 from the Dundee firm of Drummond, Robbie and Gibson between 1 March and 30 November 1993.

He is also charged with embezzling 31,625 while acting as the manager of the company, between 1 January and 30 June 1995.

It is further alleged that between 30 November 1994 and 6 July 1995, he practised as a solicitor or held himself out as entitled to practise, without a certificate in force, contrary to the Solicitors (Scotland) Act.

The alleged offences are said to have occured at Drummond, Robbie and Gibson's offices in Dundee and elsewhere in Scotland.

Mr Drummond faces another charge of attempting to pervert the course of justice, by the hands of his own lawyer, producing fabricated documents to avoid prosecution for embezzlement.

The case was continued for two weeks at the request of his advocate, Hugh Irwin.
