Drugs bust on former Celtic striker

FORMER Celtic striker Andy Payton has been caught with a mini cannabis farm at his home.
Cops raided the house and seized 17 dope plants.
Payton wasn't in when the police arrived but was arrested later in the centre of his home town of Burnley, Lancashire.
The 41-year-old accepted a police caution for possession of class B drugs. He refused to comment yesterday, other than to say: "I don't use cannabis. I don't do drugs."
Lancashire Police confirmed that they recovered 17 cannabis plants in Burnley on Wednesday. They added: "A 41-year-old man was arrested and received a police caution."
Payton signed for Celtic in 1992 but failed to make an impression in Glasgow and left after a year.
He had more success in the lower leagues in England. He scored 81 goals in five seasons for Burnley, earning the nickname The Predator.
Payton went to Barnsley from Celtic. He also played for Middlesbrough, Huddersfield and Blackpool.
He was due to play for Burnley in Sky TV's old boys' tournament, the Masters Cup, next month.
