Article from The Daily Mail
HENDRY, who was charged with drink driving earlier this month after a row in a boozer, has reportedly pestered an ex after the breakdown of their relationship.
FORMER Scotland football captain Colin Hendry has been given a warning over harassment.
Hendry, 49, has reportedly pestered an ex-girlfriend after the breakdown of their relationship.
He began seeing beautician Sarah Kinder after the death of his wife Denise, 42, in 2009 following cosmetic surgery.
A spokesman for Lancashire Police said: “A 49-year-old man from Lytham has been given an harassment warning.”
The warning does not count as a criminal record but runs for 12 months to deter an individual from future conduct causing distress.
Hendry, who lives in Lytham, is due in court in Blackpool on March 4 to face a drink-driving charge.
He had a long playing career, captaining his country in the 1998 World Cup and appearing for a series of clubs including Blackburn Rovers, Manchester City, Bolton Wanderers and Glasgow Rangers.

Colin Hendry admits drink driving but former Scotland captain says he should be let off because of his ‘rare’ metabolism
- Colin Hendry was arrested for drink driving near his Lancashire home
- When breathalysed, he was found to be nearly double legal alcohol limit
- But Hendry claims he did not drink much and blamed a ‘rare’ metabolism
Former Scotland captain Colin Hendry is preparing to fight a ban from the roads after blaming his drink driving on a ‘rare’ metabolism.
The 49-year old former Rangers and Blackburn Rovers defender was arrested last month after police stopped him near his home in Lytham, Lancashire in the early hours of February 21.
Officers had claimed Hendry who was nicknamed ‘Braveheart’ when he captain of Scotland was almost twice the limit after failing a breathaylser test.
But on Wednesday, widowed father of four Hendry disputed the reading and asked Blackpool Magistrates to have the case adjourned so his metabolism could be tested.
The court heard that Hendry admitted drinking before driving his blue Ford Focus, but argued the amount of alcohol he drank over a certain period of time should not have put him over the limit.
His lawyer Glyn Lewis – who has previously represented a string of celebrities over his expertise in exploiting motoring legal loopholes – said: ‘Usually we go to sentence and it is inevitable he would have to be disqualified because he has entered a guilty plea because he accepts the facts.
‘But the instructions I have over the amount of alcohol consumed and the time period, when you do the calculations they don’t correlate with the figure he has given.
‘There are two possibilities – one is because of the fact that he has got some alcohol in his system he is unaware of and the other is quite rare is we have somebody whose metabolism is such they provide a specimen of breath which does not correlate with the reading of blood.
‘We have had a forensic scientist give us an indication that the figures provided by the defendant don’t correlate with the figures given by the sample.
‘We accept the prosecution’s case – the police followed him, he wasn’t driving erratically, nothing unusual about that, he accepts that – the question is why is this alcohol reading being given that is being investigated.
‘We can establish what he consumed and when it was because there are receipts.
‘Mr Hendry might have to be tested for his metabolism in the lab with a reconstruction of the whole evening’s events. The ratio between breath and blood is not the same for everyone.
‘If our investigations don’t have foundation in science we would bring it back to court and have it dealt with. Mr Hendry wants the matter to be dealt with as quickly as possible.’
The court agreed to adjourn for a ‘special reasons’ hearing in which Hendry will call evidence from a forensic service scientist and two civilian witnesses who were with him on the night of the incident.
Hendry – who arrived for the hearing in sunglasses and a grey suit – had 63 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 milliltres of breath- the legal limit is 35mg.
Initial forensic tests conducted on behalf of Hendry had shown the figures did not correlate and further investigation was needed, said Mr Lewis.
The solicitor added that the later sentencing bench could have the option not to disqualify Hendry from driving but the conviction would stand regardless.
Hendry, was granted unconditional bail until April 22 when the case will be heard in full before sentencing.
The ex-Permier League footballer had a long playing career, captaining his country in the 1998 World Cup and appearing for a series of clubs including Blackburn Rovers, Manchester City, Bolton Wanderers and Rangers.
Last week police confirmed he had been given a warning amid claims he had pestering former girlfriend Sarah Kinder a beautician he had been dating after the death of his wife Denise in 2009 following botched cosmetic surgery.
Miss Kinder, 40, claimed he looked in her window and sent her unwanted texts and social media messages after their four-year relationship ended late last year. It was also claimed the former footballer repeatedly drove past her home.

“The third possibility judge is that either my client is lying to me or that I know the full story but I’m more interested in being paid my fees than keeping a drink driver off our roads.” Don’t you just love lawyers.

THE TRUTH; What Really Happened That Got Two Pensioners Convicted for Assaulting “Braveheart” Hendry
Hector McFarlane writes;
I was having a drink with my wife and some friends in a bar/restaurant in Lytham , Hendry and his daughter arrived , I have never had the opportunity since he stole my money to confront him, so I went and asked him about my money ,his reply to me was “I`VE GOT YOUR MONEY ARSEWIPE NOW FUCK OFF” so I slapped him , he fell to the floor screaming “call the police, call the police” his daughter came rushing over ,she had at least 5 inch high heels, she either fell over him or Hendry dragged her down , they both started screaming “call the police” that is the truth , I looked down at Hendry screaming “call the police, call the police” I thought , why does this coward like to call himself ‘Braveheart’ , he has it on his twitter , facebook , but he is in fact Scotlands biggest coward.
I have never hit a woman in my life , the place had CCTV cameras and there was no video of me striking anyone , any reporter who writes otherwise has not read the court transcript , of course Hendry eats and drinks in this place 3/4 times weekly so the place supported him , I cannot afford to go in there very often.
I am a 65 year old honourable man ,unlike the proven liar that Hendry is we have pages of his lies , all here on this website to read , I think these pages prove the type of people they both are , Rheagan Hendry`s is a unmarried mother and the father of her child is an extremely likeable young man, but that relationship has ended in bitterness , and she claims of violence against her by this decent young man , more lies by this spoilt young lady , a old member of the father of Rheagan Hendry`s child family , a decent hard working family remarked about Rheagan Hendry “the bad apple does not fall far from the tree”.
Why would two old pensioners that have never been in trouble with the police all their lives , have an assault charge upheld against the Hendy`s , what would be the reason ?
My wife got found guilty of assault A 63 YEAR OLD LADY she was accused of pointing her finger at Rheagan Hendry ,
In Rheagans Hendry`s statement to the police she called my wife ‘a mad old bitch”
Hendry has a pension annuity of 86,000 pounds per year , a 2 million pound pension pot , he works as assistant to the youth team coach at Blackburn Rovers on a very high salary on top of his pension money, he has all this coming in , and lives very well , huge house , big Mercedes, his pension was exempt from creditors when he went bankrupt , so he was bankrupt for a period of 12 months , and that wipes away 2.2 million pounds of debts and my pension savings he stole from me of 95,000 pounds , does this sound like justice ?
Colin Hendry, ”my word is my honour” .
Colin Hendry , when asking for a loan from us his words were “my word is my honour” and “I promise you whatever happens you will get your money back “ now just empty words that he wrote to us ,empty words written by a dishonourable man ,a man of straw, you can see by the emails we received from him below the vile nature and unrepentent attitude about swindling us out of our retirement savings.
This webpage is not only about Colin Hendry’s lies about his financial position when asking us for loans ,such as his quote “I’m worth 10,000,0000 pounds (ten million pounds) in assets but all tied up , when in fact he was potless, this is more about his and his daughter Rheagans fanatic attempts to use all sorts of methods to discredit us when it was becoming obvious Hendry was simply a skint liar and it was all coming out.
1.The real truth on how Hendry managed to get a coaching job at Blackburn Rover.
2. Hendry’s domestic violence history.
Apparently the public are interested in the immoral dishonest behaviour as the truth about this man has been read by over 100,000 people
By discrediting us he thought he could retain his credibility and my wife and I would be seen in a bad light by the public , people do not realise the extent some of these famous egotistical people will go to make themselves look favourable in the eyes of the public and discredit the honest people around them by using the press to print stories about them that are blatant lies , Hendry uses the Scottish Daily Record these papers will put in anything Hendry says without ever checking it out .
We have already had apologies from many different newspapers on the stories Hendry has provided them with that were eventually proven to be lies.
The real truth on how Hendry managed to get a coaching job at Blackburn Rover.
Last summer Colin Hendry managed to bag himself a job coaching at Blackburn Rovers , he was appointed as first team coach , this appointment was made by the ex-manager Steve Kean and it was done mainly on the strength of the amount of crawling Hendry did , he stabbed the core of the Rovers`s supporters in the back by “talking up ” Kean and telling all who would listen that the majority of supporters are behind Kean this basically was not true , a lie , but through these lies he got a job ,which was actually mainly driving Kean around as lost his driving licence to drink driving.
Hendry had told Kean that he has The Blackburn Rover supporter eating out his hand by his getting a job at Rover ,the Rover supporters will fully back Steve Kean as manager,that was the statement Hendry gave to Kean so he could get a job at Blackburn Rover.
The disgust about Hendry`s talking up Kean comments at the time was insulting to the core of the decent and genuine Rover`s fans,who, were made by Hendry to look like a bunch of nasty vindictive people , anyway Hendry got the job but his comments made it much more difficult for The Rovers`s fans to get their anger across, and much more difficult for them to get Kean out and start the club moving forward .
A footnote on that is when Kean eventually left Rovers Hendry was demoted from first team coach to assistant coach of the reserves ,I believe from first team coach to assistant coach of reserves ,he now coaching the youngster at Rover’s ,not sure if the influence of Hendry and his sordid behavior would be welcomed by most parents that have kids there .
Link below on backing of Kean and a few weeks later his job offer by Kean.
So Hendry gets a highly paid job at Rover`s ,but of course that does not mean his creditors in his bankruptcy will get more money back from the bankrupt ,no his agreement in bankrupty was to pay £1,000 a month for 3 years a total of £36,000 to be shared out amongst all his £2.2 million creditors , but no he cannot even do that , he has £ 2 million pension pot, lives in a million pound house, drives a new mercedes , kids at the most expensive private schools ,gets well paid at Rovers and in all he has paid two months at a £1,000 a month. He is 22 months behind , and it will be forgotten about ,because the Trustees cannot be bothered chasing him to pay.
One Friday evening last summer my wife and I were out with some friends having a few drinks, one of Hendry`s sycophantic pals was also in the bar , this insipid wee Smidgin of a guy runs about at Hendry`s beck and call 24/7 , this guy has a local nickname “brown nose” and local people find it very amusing the way he runs around after Hendry , anyway he was in the bar , a friend of ours overheard him calling Hendry and saying (his words were ) “The McFarlanes are in the bar” anyway about 20 minutes later Hendry and his entourage arrive, he stopped at the foyer and started to stare into space, (as I have never had the opportunity to speak to Hendry since he got all our money and went bankrupt ) I approached him .His words he spoke to me when asking for a loan were ringing in my ear “my word is my honour” and “ whatever happens you will get your money back” .Now empty words. Previously we did try and speak to him, we went around to his house , Hendry went to his bedroom and stayed there for 6 hours until we left , wee boy hiding behaviour).
Hendry ‘s history of domestic violence.
Hendry got banged up in Blackpool jail for a night , the police came to his house in the early hours of Sunday morning , handcuffed him and banged him up, his barrister got him out next afternoon , Hendry`s comment to the press the next day was “It must have been a double of me” A DOUBLE OF HIM !
What a cowardly answer , again Hendry not man enough to accept his guilt and behavior .
GOD HELP US A DOUBLE OF HENDRY LIVING IN THE SAME HOUSE WITH THE SAME GIRLFRIEND !!!!
The police came to his house and arrested a double of him anyway, the complainant never proceeded with the charges .
Of course this is not the first investigation of that kind, on New Years day 2009 Hendry`s daughter ended up in Blackpool Victoria Hospital ,she was covered in bruises and black and blue, the nursing staff in the hospital asked her “who did this to you” her answer was “my dad” a police investigation went on for four weeks ,the police sent two detectives from Blackpool investigating unit to Dundee to interview the guests who were in the house at the time of the alleged assault . No charges were brought as the victim changed her story!
Well either Hendry battered his daughter or his daughter once again was telling lies , the both of them do not know the difference between the truth and a lie , but the amount of police resources these two go through is incredible ,and when you consider Hendry has never paid income tax , ( and in fact he went bankrupt owing the tax office 1.5 million pounds ,) his daughter has never held a proper job , they have no qualms about using as much resources as they feel like without contributing anything into the system
Lady pensioner sets off alarm to escape from Hendry’s abuse.
My wife was purchasing an item from the forecourt of a used furniture shop , when Hendry saw her from across the street , he came charging aggressively across the road with his mobile phone pointed directly at her clearly he was recording her ,(in retrospect looking for some reaction he could use against her) .He aggressively came straight up to her only inches from her face , my wife in sheer fright set off her personal rape alarm . The look of complete fear and shock on this mans face as he realised he wasn’t going to get the reaction he had hoped for was a picture. Hendry’s tail went between his legs and he scuttled back to the safety of his brand new Mercedes .
The sheer audacity of this man ,he later then phoned the police, not once that day but 14 times ! and accused my wife of abusing him ,my wife will be 63 next birthday , incredible behavior by this cowardly man.
As discussed wording of apology is as follows.
Hector McFarlane: An apology
ON June 26, 2010, we published an article on Page 9 of the Scottish Daily Express, concerning the grave of ex-footballer Colin Hendry’s late wife, Denise.
The quotes attributed to former friend Hector McFarlane, commenting on funeral arrangements and a headstone for Mrs Hendry’s grave, were supplied to us by Watson’s, a Blackpool–based news agency and used by us in good faith.
We now accept the comments attributed to Mr McFarlane were wholly inaccurate.
