Bhoys fan found guilty after Celtic fans run riot

Celtic fan kicked and traded punches with another man after watching Imps friendly

WOMEN cowered and traffic stopped when Lincoln City and Celtic fans started fighting, a court heard.

Self-employed Stewart Stanley admitted yesterday to kicking another man before trading punches with him during the High Street violence.

The Scotsman was fined £335 for his actions at Lincoln Magistrates' Court, but spared from receiving a three-year football banning order.

The court heard Stanley stopped watching Celtic's pre-season friendly with Lincoln City on July 24 because it was "rubbish".

The 32-year-old returned to the lower High Street area, where fighting broke out about 3.20pm.

Prosecutor Nick Todd said CCTV footage showed fans from both sides charging at each other, but Stanley was not involved.

Mr Todd added the father-of-one was later spotted kicking a man who ran past him.

In mitigation, Tony Freitus said: "He holds his hands up and accepts he did wrong."

Stanley, of Calderbraes Avenue, Uddingston, Glasgow, pleaded guilty to a public order offence. He was ordered to pay costs of £85 and a £15 surcharge.
