La Repubblica reports that the case surrounds a 2008 brawl in a Milan nightclub between the Ulsterman and Gabriele Moratti, the son of the Italian city's former mayor.

Their respective lawyers announced in court this week that negotiations for a settlement had collapsed and so the first witnesses will be called on 30 January.

Irvine, 46, claims he was punched in the head during the fight over a girlfriend, while Moratti says he was glassed in the face.
