Celtic fan to stand trial for 'racially abusing Rangers players' on Twitter

A man is to stand trial accused of racially abusing two former Rangers players on Twitter.
Michael Convery, 41, from Govan, Glasgow, is accused of making racist remarks which caused or were intended to cause alarm and distress.
The alleged comments were made to Swansea player Kyle Bartley and Bursapor midfielder Maurice Edu on January 14, 2012.
Both players were with Rangers at the time of the alleged incident.
Convery denied the charges when he appeared at Glasgow Sheriff Court on Wednesday.
A trial date has been set for later this year.
