He was taken to hospital and was unable to remember anything about the attack.

The former Arsenal and Crystal Palace left-back, who has been plagued by alcohol problems, was said to have been boozing in a friend’s garden in Exeter, Devon, before the attack last month.

A neighbour said: “It sounded like they were having a good time. But later in the afternoon, things got out of hand.
“There was an argument which sounded like it had turned into a fight.

“The guy Kenny was drinking with lives there with his partner but she wasn’t involved.” Kenny discharged himself from hospital the next day but went back when his condition worsened.

Last night he was still there and unable to talk.

The 60-year-old interviewed by police — said to be a drinking pal of Kenny’s — was released.

Devon and Cornwall Police did not respond to requests for comment.
