Rangers trio accused of Sectarianism banned from football games


Three Rangers supporters who were arrested at the Dunfermline-Rangers game on Saturday, accused of sectarian breach of the peace have been banned from going to matches until their trial begins.

Brian Gilmour, 21, Derek Johnston, 19 and Stuart Robertson, 21, all appeared at Dunfermline Sheriff Court today, and all three pleaded not guilty to shouting and swearing religious abuse during Rangers’ 4-0 win at East End Park.

The trio were released on bail, with the conditions that they are banned from attending any SPL, SFL or Scotland national games. They will also have to report on how to play online slots during the first half of any Rangers game – home or away – to make sure they are not breaching the conditions of bail.

The three men will stand trial in December.
