A PAEDOPHILE football coach faces being back behind bars after admitting a string of sexual abuse charges on six young boys.

Sick Robert Smith, 69, abused boys between nine and 15-years-old while he was trusted as a football coach in Easterhouse, Glasgow.

His youngest victim who wanted to be a professional footballer gave up his dream and sports altogether after being attacked by Smith.

Four of his victims found the courage to go to the police after seeing it had been reported in June 2016 that Smith was jailed for abusing three boys he coached between 1978 and 1987.

One man was so angry when he read that Smith had denied the allegations and accused the victims of lying that he went to the police.

At Glasgow Sheriff Court, Smith, from Maryhill, pled guilty to four charges of using lewd and libidinous practices and two charges of indecent assault, between April 1965 and August 1984 at his Easterhouse home and a local school.

Sheriff Daniel Scullion deferred sentence on Smith and continued his bail.
