A teenager has been arrested over a racist comment allegedly made online to Wales goalkeeper Jason Brown after a World Cup qualifier against Scotland.
The 30-year-old, who also plays for Aberdeen Football Club, was allegedly sent a racist comment on the Twitter social networking website in October.
Grampian Police said they have now arrested a 17-year-old man from Aberdeen.
A report will be sent to the procurator fiscal.
