It is reported that Simpson got into a scuffle in a takeaway at around 4am on Sunday.
The Sun’s exclusive includes disturbing video footage of Simpson lying apparently unconscious on the roadside, although a spokesman for Simpson claims the player will be at training today.
The newspaper claims that
‘Witnesses said the Newcastle defender hit the man, in his late 40s or 50s, knocking him to the ground. Simpson then left the takeaway, climbed into a taxi, but was then dragged out by another man and punched’,
It is reported that Simpson lay bleeding and unconscious for around 15 minutes until Paramedics attended and rushed him to hospital.
It is claimed that it was two bouncers who rushed over and opened the taxi door, with one of them punching the player in the face.
The Ambulance service later confirmed a man had been taken to hospital and Manchester Police also confirmed they’d attended after reports of an assault.
