Paul McBride, QC, right, said the incident had presented Scotland as a “third-world country” to outsiders and that it was time to tackle the sectarianism that had become intertwined with footballing rivalry.
His comments came as police seek three potential witnesses in connection with the package that was addressed to Mr McBride and intercepted at a postbox in Kilwinning, Ayrshire, last Friday. A young couple, walking with a Staffordshire bull terrier puppy, and a man in his thirties with the same breed of dog, were seen in the Montgomerie Terrace area last Friday around 2pm.
