Rangers complained to police on Sunday, claiming the 20-year-old defender, who is on loan from Arsenal, was abused on the social networking site Twitter.

It came hours after the Glasgow side were defeated 3-0 by rivals Celtic in the last Old Firm game of the season.

Strathclyde Police said on Tuesday day that a 18-year-old man had been arrested in connection with the incident. He is due to appear at Glasgow Sheriff Court.
