TWO Rangers supporters have been jailed for a total of eight months and banned from attending any football match involving a senior British team for four years.

Vehicle parts trader Stephen Campbell, 23, from Glasgow, wept in Perth Sheriff Court as he was jailed for four months for carrying out a violent sectarian attack on Celtic supporters after a match.

He and ground worker Kevin Anderson, 33, from Gourock, who was also jailed for four months, were made the subject of a wide ranging football banning order until February 2016.

The pair had clashed with rival Old Firm fans when the two supporters’ buses pulled into the Broxden service station in Perth at the same time.

Sheriff Michael Fletcher banned them from watching not only Rangers, but every senior football team in Scotland, England and Wales, along with those countries’ international teams. The ban exists throughout Europe.
