Former Luton Town striker Ricky Miller today denied a race attack on a taxi driver.
Mr Miller, 26, is accused of racially aggravated fear of violence, racially aggravated common assault and an alternative charge of assault by beating.
The offences are alleged to have been against taxi driver Mohammed Adnam in Hockliffe near Leighton a Buzzard on 27 April this year. The incident came after Miller had been on a night out with his former teammates at Pink Punters in Milton Keynes.
Mr Miller, of Valence End, Dunstable, pleaded not guilty to all three charges and was bailed by Judge David Farrell QC at Luton crown court.
His trial is due to start in the warned list for 26 October this year.
