Celtic thug fined for sectarian abuse


A THUG who filmed himself shouting abuse at Rangers legend Andy Goram has been fined £600.

Aaron Laing, 25, swore and made sectarian comments to former goalkeeper Goram at a bookies in Peterhead in January.

The yob, from Dundee, was in a pub when he learned that Goram was in the nearby betting shop.

He entered the shop shouting at Goram and used his mobile phone to film the incident.

Laing was sentenced at Peterhead Sheriff Court after he pled guilty to threatening and abusive behaviour.

Vicki Lee Bell, football liaison prosecutor for the north of Scotland, said: “There is no place in a modern Scotland for behaviour motivated by prejudice, discrimination or bigotry of any kind.

“It is the right of everyone to go about their business without fear of humiliation, harassment or abuse.

“The Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service will continue to adopt a zero-tolerance approach to such offences and bring those who perpetrate such crimes to justice."
