Stokes, who has a two-year-old son with Miss Scott, is alleged to have breached orders not to contact Miss Scott or her mother between November and December last year.

Prosecutors also claim that he breached a ruling keeping him from Miss Scott for four years by sending her an email message in March this year.

The charges also state that he allegedly broke bail conditions and the terms of a non-harassment order which he was handed last September.

Stokes, from Glasgow, was not present when his case called at Hamilton Sheriff Court on Friday.

He denies all of the charges against him and a trial is set to take place next month.

He is banned from contacting Miss Scott or her parents as part of his bail conditions. He is also banned from entering two streets in Shotts, Lanarkshire, where they live.

Stokes, who started his career at Arsenal, won seven trophies in six seasons at Parkhead and netted twice in Hibs’ 3-2 Scottish Cup win over Rangers in 2016.

He joined Iranian team Tractor Sazi FC in 2018 and also signed a deal with Turkish second division side Adana Demirspor.

He signed with Scottish Premiership side Livingston in August, but quit the club after just three weeks claiming he struggled to adapt to training on the team’s artificial pitch.
