A LANARKSHIRE football club has hit out at sunbathers and dog walkers for using their pitch as a public park.

Cambuslang Rangers Football Club have warned punters they could face police action after numerous locals were spotted using their Somervell Park home.

Sunbathing will be allowed in public parks under new lockdown rules from tomorrow but bosses have reminded sun-seekers their pitch is private land.

A post of the South Lanarkshire club's official Twitter account read: "We hope everyone is safe and respecting the importance of the Government message to stay at home.

"As rules are set to relax in the coming days we feel it is necessary to stress that Somervell Park is private owned land and should UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES be treated as a meeting point.

"Volunteers have been working so hard on our ground and we would hate for this work to be tarnished by members of the public misusing or trespassing on our facilities.

"This will not be tolerated by the club and moving forward anyone who ignores this important message will have their details passed to the police.

"Whilst this is absolutely the last thing that the police should be having to deal with at these times we will have to take a stance against this.

"Stay At Home. Protect The NHS. Save Lives."

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon confirmed this afternoon that lockdown measure will be easing from tomorrow, with sunbathing in the park permitted and non-contact sports such as tennis and golf allowed to resume.
