A JUBILANT Rangers fan who ran on to the pitch at Ibrox was banned from football matches for three years on Monday.

Jamie Donaldson, 31, committed the offence after Gers defeated Dundee 4-0 last February.

He pleaded guilty at Glasgow Sheriff Court to conducting himself in a disorderly manner and committing breach of the peace.

The court heard the incident happened at full time when Donaldson jumped over a wall.

Prosecutor Darren Harty said: “He entered the running track and on to the field of play where he was approached by stewards who handed him over to the police.”

Lawyer Neal McShane, defending, told the court Donaldson has a previous football conviction from August 2010 when he was fined £150.

Mr McShane added: “He is a Rangers supporter and they won and he got carried away then ran on to the pitch while under the heavy influence of alcohol.

“He accepts his conduct was entirely unacceptable for a football game.”

Donaldson was remanded at an earlier hearing on October 2 by Sheriff Paul Brown after failing to complete his social work report.

The sheriff put Donaldson, of the city’s Shettleston, under the supervision of social workers for two years today/yesterday.

The sheriff stated: “You have spent a period of time in custody and I will have that serve as your punishment.

“I’m satisfied due to the nature of the offence, it’s important to impose a banning order to stop disorder at football matches.”
