Former Manchester United manager David Moyes is being investigated after allegedly assaulting a 23-year-old man in a bar.

Reportedly Moyes had been drinking at the Emporium wine bar in Clitheroe when the alleged incident occurred at around 10pm on Wednesday evening.

The well-known bar is situated above an antique shop and is only a short drive from his Moyes home.

No one arrests have been made at this stage.

Lancashire Police said: “Police are investigating a report of an assault at the Emporium wine bar in Clitheroe.

“Officers attended the bar at about 10pm yesterday and it was reported that a 23-year-old local man had been assaulted by a 51-year-old man. He did not require hospital treatment.

“Inquiries are ongoing and we are speaking to a number of people to try to establish the circumstances.

“There are a number of differing accounts which we need to work through to try to establish exactly what has happened.”

Moyes was recently sacked by the Red Devils with four games last season to spare, following a disastrous first year in charge at Old Trafford.

The 51-year-old former Everton manager has been linked with the newly vacated Celtic job since former manager Neil Lennon quite the club after a three-year stint.
