The 33-year-old striker, who scored 34 international goals, did attend Laganside Magistrates' Court for his first appearance on Wednesday morning.

He is accused of assaulting James Geroid Crossan on May 26 last year.

Healy's defence solicitor Richard McConkey requested a two-week adjournment for the case.

Healy, from Castleview Terrace, Killyleagh in Co Down, currently plays for League One side Bury.

In 2008, he was awarded an MBE for services to football and the community - the same year he scored 13 goals in the qualifying competition for the 2008 European Championship - the highest total in the competition's history.

Healy, who came through Manchester United's youth system, has also played for Leeds United, Fulham, Sunderland and Rangers.

District Judge Ken Nixon said the case would be listed again in two weeks' time.

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
