JEREMY Corbyn was heckled by a Church of Scotland minister calling him a “terrorist sympathiser” as he made his first general election visit to Scotland.

Footage shows the Labour leader speaking to the media alongside his Scottish Labour equivalent Richard Leonard before Reverend Richard Cameron began shouting accusations regarding Mr Corbyn’s "sympathies".

Heckling Mr Corbyn outside the Heart of Scotstoun community centre in Glasgow, Rev Cameron referenced a tartan scarf worn by the Labour leader, shouting: “I thought you would be wearing your Islamic Jihad scarf.”

Mr Corbyn did not respond to the comment, but as he turned to walk away, the heckler continued: “Do you think the man that is going to be prime minister of this country should be a terrorist sympathiser?”

Sky News reporter Tom Rayner posted the video on Twitter.

Rev Cameron went on: “Who is going to be the first terrorist invited to the House of Commons when you are prime minister?”

Mr Corbyn – who looked visibly uncomfortable – was then ushered inside the venue, to which Rev Cameron shouted: “Aye, he’s running away."

It later emerged a Twitter account in Rev Cameron's name has made several homophobic and Islamophobic remarks.

The Labour leader attended the event as part of a two-day visit to key seats in Scotland ahead of December's general election.

He insisted a Labour government would tackle homelessness, the climate catastrophe and housing problems – as well as overhauling social security and protecting the NHS.

Mr Corbyn said his party would bring investment and social justice to Scotland.

And he told activists and candidates he was “itching and burning” to unveil the Labour manifesto. 

He said: “I ask you to get behind our Labour candidates all across the city of Glasgow – indeed, all across Scotland."

A Church of Scotland spokeswoman said: “The Church of Scotland as an organisation has a long history of engaging with politicians through a number of different channels.

“Whilst we may occasionally robustly challenge policy issues with which we disagree, we always intend to do that in a way that is polite and measured and allows for reasoned debate.”

The Kirk later added: “There has been significant concern raised today about the comments made by Rev Richard Cameron and his social media use.”

“At this stage all we can say is that there is a formal complaints process and that any complaints we receive in relation to this matter will be taken seriously and addressed.

“We do deplore any comments which are Islamophobic or homophobic.

“The Church of Scotland works closely with our Islamic neighbours and the General Assembly has taken a strong position and said formally that we decry homophobia in any form."
