British Transport Police today said they had charged three men aged 22, 25, and 23, from Edinburgh, and a 25-year-old man from South Queensferry.
They were summed to appear before Manchester and Salford Magistrates’ Court, charged with using threatening or abusive words.
They are now expected to appear in court on May 16.
Speaking after the alleged confrontation, Red Rose boss Jones happily posed for selfies with fans on the train but vowed he would never use public transport again.

The Aussie, 58, said: “It wasn’t comfortable but that’s the world we live in.
“Also it’s magnified that if you’re in a position of responsibility, you’ve got to be careful what you say.
“If you talk about hate and about rubbing people’s noses in the dirt, it incites certain behaviour.
