TWO men kicked off in a Springburn supermarket and abused a security guard.

Ryan Murray and Brian Weldon were together at Parkgate Supermarket on Balgrayhill Road on March 24 last year when trouble started.

Depute fiscal Lauren Ram Sangray told Glasgow Sheriff Court how the security guard spoke to the men and asked them to leave but Murray, 23, replied: "Get to f***" and attempted to walk past him.

Weldon, 19, was standing at the exit to the store and started to shout: "What are you going to do?"

Both men became aggressive and shouted: "What are you going to do? Come outside then.

"F****** come outside then."

Murray's brief said he has been working hard on his own to seek medical help and counselling for his drinking.

The lawyer added: "He has not had an easy time of it.

"He fully recognises that this behaviour was deplorable behaviour.

"Binge drinking is the problem for him and once he starts he has difficulty stopping it."

Sheriff Allan McKay said: "Voluntary attendance is a fantastic thing, that is what you seek to have from all people like him."

Weldon's solicitor said he is already subject to a compulsory supervision order and another sheriff is "keeping a very close eye on him".

The lawyer said: "He is living in a mortgaged property with his long term girlfriend and she is a steady influence and is keeping him on the straight and narrow.

"He is attempting to make changes as he was coming before the court quite regularly."

To Murray, the sheriff said: "I am very, very impressed by the [criminal justice social work report].

"You are looking well, you don't look like a man subject to any form of addiction."

Murray was told he would have to come back to court in six months for a review hearing.

The sheriff said to Weldon: "You seem to have a significantly different background [to Murray].

"You have got this relationship with your girlfriend and are working hard.

"I will admonish you on this charge and Sheriff Cameron will keep an eye on you."
