An admin worker at Burton Albion who sent racy pictures to one player is also rumoured to have had a fling with a goalkeeper who went on to become a WWE wrestler, a tribunal has heard.
Kerry Miller, 46, is accused of repeatedly barging into the changing rooms while players were getting dressed after post-match showers.
She confessed to having a ‘casual’ relationship with former defender Ryan Austin, 29, who has since left the League Two club.
On the third day of her employment tribunal today, the hearing heard of allegations of rumours she had been seeing 28-year-old goalkeeper Stuart Tomlinson between September and Christmas 2012.
