A HIBS fan who hurled homophobic abuse at Celtic supporters was fined £300.

Matt MacGregor, 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 MacGregor, of Kirkcaldy, Fife, behaved in a threatening or abusive manner.

The charge says he approached the barrier separating opposition supporters.

MacGregor went on to shout and swear at them.

He then uttered offensive and homophobic remarks towards the Celtic supporters.

MacGregor pleaded guilty in October 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.

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

The sheriff imposed the fine at Thursday's sentencing but did not ban McGregor from football matches.
