The former Australian international football captain has been arrested in Dubai.

Craig Moore, 34, was involved in a drunken altercation with police, according to reports in The Herald Sun in Melbourne.

An Australian embassy official told The National that it was providing consular assistance to a 34-year-old man from Queensland who was arrested in Dubai on Wednesday.

“The man remains in detention, and has legal representation,” she said. “Consular officials from the Australian Embassy in Abu Dhabi spoke to the man via telephone today. He confirmed his welfare.”

Dubai Police were unwilling to confirm whether they had detained Mr Moore.

“Consular staff will visit the man at the earliest opportunity,” the embassy official said. “Officials are providing consular assistance to the man’s wife in Australia and are in contact with the man’s lawyer.”

Mr Moore, a central defender, retired from football after the 2010 Fifa World Cup in South Africa.

He spent most of his professional career with the Scottish club Rangers, apart from two seasons in England with Newcastle United of the Premier League.

He played 52 times for the Australian national side, known as the Socceroos, including the 2006 and 2010 World Cups.

Mr Moore is likely to appear in court on Sunday.

2003 - refuses to sign a new contract unless we make big name signings

2004 - chooses to go to the tinpot Olympics football tournament instead of playing in a Champions League qualifier

Aye, he was Rangers to the core, he was

The guy is a tosser of the highest order. Just check his career post Rangers. Sacked by Moenchengladbach for turning up to training drunk, sacked by some Greek mob for an "off field incident", and fined in Australia for placing bets on his own team.

Its true he didn't give a fuck about us when he was away playing for Oz. In fact he was quoted as saying he didn't even know who we were playing and he was club captain at the time.

He was good for us for a while and got stuck right in but those comments were enough to make him a chunt and he can gtf. :sherlock:

I wasn't calling Moore a twat because he doesn't give about Rangers. I was calling him a twat because he should know the strict rules over in Dubai before going over and breaking them. Although I do think he doesn't give a fuck about us.
