Hibernian’s star striker, Garry O’Connor, helped keep his under-performing club out of the relegation zone this year with 12 goals, over half the team’s total. But he might end up in a lot of hot water if he’s convicted of insurance fraud.
O’Connor told his insurers, Aviva, that while driving on April 30, he had crashed his Ferrari F430 Spider F1. The car was later written off.
However, his insurers and the prosecution allege that the crash took place two weeks earlier, and that the car had been driven by a friend of his.
Smart readers may recall O’Connor as the former Birmingham City player who was arrested on drug charges and later banned for two months after a test found traces of cocaine in his system.
Although we’re not that interested in insurance claims, we do wonder how an SPL player with a confirmed drug habit who doesn’t play for an Old Firm club can afford a Ferrari.
