Former champion boxer Scott Harrison has returned to Scotland to serve the remainder of a four-year prison term imposed in Spain over assault charges.

The 38-year-old, from Glasgow, was extradited last year after the Spanish authorities claimed he left the country in 2012 before his sentence began.

His family confirmed on social media he was now back in Scotland.

A message on his Twitter account said: “Scott’s now back in Scotland. Happy to finally see Stacey and his four kids after a year in Spain.”

The former WBO Featherweight champion is understood to have been transferred to Glasgow’s Barlinnie Prison.
