A man who shouted sectarian abuse at rival fans following the Aberdeen versus Celtic Scottish Cup fixture was today sentenced at Glasgow Sheriff Court.

Jan Reilly (46), from Paisley, was fined £200 and had a two year Football Banning Order imposed for shouting the abuse as he exited Celtic Park after the cup tie on February 8 this year.

Speaking following sentencing Stephen Ferguson, Football Liaison Prosecutor for the West of Scotland, said: "Football fans on the way to or from a match should not be subjected to insults and abuse by someone seemingly intent on provoking them. This sort of behaviour is totally unacceptable, brings shame on the game and embarrasses genuine supporters."
