Sectarian Celtic fan fined after punching young girl in the face

Jul 31 2009

A CELTIC fan punched a female Rangers supporter in the face after seeing his side lose the SPL title.
Paul Connell unleashed a sickening tirade of abuse, calling Donna Brereton an "Orange cow" at a party on the final day of last season.
Connell had been to Celtic Park hoping to see his team win the league - but they drew and Rangers won to be crowned champions.
Connell returned home to Bonnybridge, Stirlingshire, and went to a party at his neighbour's home.
When he spotted Donna wearing a Rangers shirt, he flew into a rage.
He punched her on the nose and launched into a sectarian tirade,Falkirk Sheriff Court heard yesterday.
Connell, 37, of Bonnybridge, admitted the assault on May 24 . Sheriff Jacqueline Neilson fined him £640, and ordered him to pay his victim £300 in compensation.
She said: "Your behaviour was totally unacceptable."
