Prosecutor Chris Farrell said: “Witnesses could hear revving of a motorbike engine.

“It was believed the bike was travelling too fast due to the number of pedestrians on the street.

“The boy was crossing the Clyde Gateway and was hit with the bike which was travelling at 42 miles per hour at the point of impact.

“The bike then travelled a further 49 metres from the point of impact.”

The boy was rushed to hospital and spent six days inside being treated for his injuries.

He has fortunately made a full recovery.

Donaldson meantime also suffered a broken collar bone and left wrist.

Sentence was deferred until next month by Sheriff Tom Hughes for background reports.

Donaldson, of Kirkintilloch, East Dunbartonshire, remains on bail meantime.
