PUNTERS have slammed a Glasgow nightclub for hosting "one last sesh" despite government advice to avoid pubs and clubs, to curb the spread of coronavirus. 

The move has been branded "cretinous" and "irresponsible" for remaining open on Friday and Saturday night. 

In a Facebook post, the club explained its ticketed events for this weekend would go ahead with reduced numbers, to "offer you a well needed night out and more importantly for our staff who would love to have jobs for as long as possible".

One commenter replied: "I can only imagine how bleak things look to those who work in the leisure and hospitality sector right now. I can't sympathise enough. But this is totally cretinous."

One user mocked the South Side nightclub for saying it "loves" its customers: "We love you all. We love you that much we are happy to put each and every one of you at risk. Shocking decision."

The move comes after other nightclubs, pubs and restaurants announced closures in response to government advice to slow the spread of the deadly bug. 

Iconic Glasgow venues such as Sub Club, Paesano and the GFT have all said they will close temporarily. 

The Shed has been approached for comment.
