Ross Hind had fake gun near Celtic training camp
A former soldier who pleaded guilty to causing a firearms incident outside Celtic's training ground at Lennoxtown has been given a community sentence.
Ross Hind, 20, admitted a charge of having an imitation firearm near the ground in East Dunbartonshire last May.
The incident happened at a time when Celtic manager Neil Lennon was targeted by parcel bombs.
At Glasgow Sheriff Court, Hind was ordered to carry out 100 hours of community service.
Hind, of Milton of Campsie, was one of two men and five women arrested over the incident, which saw armed police called to Celtic's training ground.'Stupid' incident
During a previous court appearance he was joined in the dock by Gary Booth, 18, and 22-year-old Katrina Henderson, who also faced the same allegation.
Mr Booth and Ms Henderson walked free after prosecutors accepted their not guilty pleas.
It is believed proceedings were previously dropped against the remaining four people.
When he appeared for sentencing, Hind's lawyer branded the incident "stupid" and said his client had lost his job in the army as a result.
Sheriff Richard Clark imposed a community payback order after being told Hind "recognised the stupidity".
The Sheriff told him that while he had knowledge of weapons others might not know it was not real.
He added: "I have noted as a result of your actions you have lost the opportunity to pursue your career."
