Cops have seized CCTV footage of a “private investigator” snooping on Rangers star Alfredo Morelos’ Lamborghini.
Detectives launched a probe after the footballer, 23, allegedly found a man “lurking” near his grey supercar.
The suspect, 29, reportedly told police he was hired by Morelos’ pregnant wife, Yesenia, to tamper with his car, after she suspected him of cheating.
Police Scotland arrested and charged the suspect with an alleged breach of the peace after an incident in a Glasgow car park on Tuesday, January 28 this year.
The private investigator told cops that Mrs Morelos arrived on foot to let him in, the Daily Record reports.
He claims she unlocked a secure entrance door leading to a car park and luxury flats – accessible only to residents or those with a fob key.
The suspect says he was assessing whether the Lambo could be fitted with a tracker.
But he was disturbed when Morelos came down to the car park to search for his wife – before the Ibrox hero chased him away in his flip-flops.
A source told the Record: “The man told police that Mrs Morelos personally arrived at the barrier to let him in.
“He believes the CCTV on its own will fully vindicate him as long as it is clear enough.”
The accused man is said to be a former army veteran.
He handed himself in to Helen Street police office on Glasgow three days after the alleged incident on January 31.
The source added: “Police told the man that his statement was consistent with what they already had.
“The man was only doing his job on behalf of a client.
“It’s a shame his reputation has been put on the line like this.
“It would be odd of him to give himself up for arrest if he had a sinister motive and no proper explanation.”
It comes days after Yesenia revealed how being pregnant had “awakened the most beautiful feelings”.
But she took to Twitter to defend herself against claims she had hired a spy, posting: “Show me the evidence where it shows that it is me.
“I give you some advice, first verify that the information is true and do not give news of which you are not sure.”
Morelos told VBar de Caracol Radio: "We hope that the person who was underneath the car tells the truth, who did it, because my wife had nothing to do with it.
"There are lots of things we don't know. But we are remaining calm and trying to get to the bottom of it."
The private investigator insists he is not a football fan and has no allegiance to either side of the Old Firm.
He also says he had no idea who Morelos was when he was “hired”.
A report is to be passed to the Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service (COPFS).
