A Glasgow sheriff slammed a man for "the worst racial abuse" he has "ever heard on the job".

Stewart Cassidy, 48, appeared at Glasgow Sheriff Court after he pleaded guilty to acting in a racially aggravated manner, swearing and uttering threats towards two people.

The court heard that the Easterhouse man was on Lochdochart Road, when he approached a pair and asked if they had money.

They said no and walked away. But Cassidy followed them.

The duo was intimidated by this, so they crossed the road.

Cassidy continued to follow them and said: “Where do you stay? Somalia, f**king Gambia, France? Where, I don’t f**king know. It’s none of my business.

"I f**king stay here, this is my street. You are a c**n, a f**king n****r, a f**king cheeky f**k.

"The women are the ones who are going to get their throats cut, so get rid of your f**king crown, you f**king monkey b*****d.”

Cassidy then ran towards the two people, who got scared and left.

Police were called. They traced the accused, he was cautioned and charged.

He replied: "Jog on, I don’t know what you are talking about.”

At the hearing, Sheriff Vincent Lunny remarked: "This is the worst racial abuse I have ever heard in this job."

Cassidy's lawyer said: "He accepts they are despicable remarks and offences.

"This was a time when he was really struggling with substance misuse. He was using both illegal drugs and alcohol. He was so intoxicated he has no recollection or memory, which is not an excuse.

"He is in a much better place now. He doesn’t use substances anymore. He managed to stay out of trouble for quite some time."

The sheriff added: "There is absolutely no excuse for it. I could easily send you back to jail."

Cassidy was placed on 12 months of supervision with a nine-month restriction of movement requirement.

This will force him to stay at his home address between 7pm and 7am.
