Lancashire Telegraph: Colin Kazim-Richards Colin Kazim-Richards

The trial of a former Blackburn Rovers footballer accused of making a homophobic gesture at a match in Brighton while playing against one of his previous clubs has been postponed.

Colin Kazim-Richards, 27, allegedly made a gesture to the crowd during Blackburn's Championship match against Brighton and Hove Albion at the Amex Stadium on February 12 last year.

Kazim-Richards, who now plays for Turkish club Bursaspor, is charged with one count of using threatening, abusive or insulting words or behaviour, or disorderly behaviour, within the sight or hearing of a person, likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress.

The London-born footballer's trial had been expected to start at Brighton Magistrates' Court on Tuesday, but has been moved to a date yet to be fixed.
