District Procurator Fiscal Liam Murphy said: “Trevor Muirhead and Neil McKenzie committed a series of criminal acts designed to intimidate and frighten a number of prominent persons connected with Celtic Football Club and Ireland.

“It is clear from the evidence that their intention had been to inflict harm on others.

“This was not about football – it was an act of violence against Scottish society as a whole, and impacted across the UK.

“COPFS is committed to playing our part in ensuring crimes against the individual and against society as a whole are treated with the utmost seriousness.

“We will continue to do everything in our power to bring those who perpetrate such crimes to justice.”
