A man hurled homophobic abuse to opposition supporters at a Celtic and Hibernian match.

Matt McGregor, 26, made the remarks at Celtic Park on March 18 2023.

The Scottish Premiership champions hosted their Edinburgh opponents in a match they won 3-1.

Court papers state McGregor, of Kirkcaldy, Fife, behaved in a threatening or abusive manner.

The charge says he approached the barrier separating opposition supporters.

McGregor went on to shout and swear at them.

He then uttered offensive and homophobic remarks towards the supporters.

McGregor pleaded guilty on Thursday to the single charge which was aggravated by prejudice relating to sexual orientation.

An allegation that he challenged the supporters to a fight was deleted by The Crown.

McGregor was ordered to be of good behaviour for six months by Sheriff Louise Arrol KC.

A football banning order will also be considered on the date in April next year
