Former Murray Park starlet Grant Adam has been jailed for eight months for stealing £15,000 from his grand-father. Grant is the brother of media star Charlie.
Grant came through the ranks at Murray Park but failed to make a top team appearance before moving to join St Mirren in 2012.
He failed to breakthrough at the Paisley side and set off on a career that took in Airdrie, Morton, Cowdenbeath and Forfar.
While he followed the career of a journeyman his brother was picking up massive wages at Liverpool and Stoke City.
Today The Sun reports:
FORMER Rangers and Scotland player Grant Adam was sent to prison for eight months today for stealing £15,000 from his 78-year-old grandfather.
Callous Adam, 30, embezzled thousands of pounds from Charles Adam in various locations across Dundee while he was supposed to be looking after his affairs.
