Port Vale have issued a statement confirming a “serious breach of club discipline” by midfielder Gary Roberts.
Roberts was suspended earlier in the season for missing a day’s training and he then (in the words of Micky Adams) “reported in unfit to carry out his duties” the following day.
The latest club statement reads: “Port Vale Football Club can confirm that the club is currently conducting a full investigation following a serious breach of club discipline by midfielder Gary Roberts.
Due to the ongoing and sensitive nature of these enquiries, Port Vale will not be issuing any further statement at this time.”
Roberts joined Vale in the summer of 2010 and has made 48 starts for the club (plus nine appearances as sub) scoring seven goals.
