Two students have been accused of a sectarian attack on Celtic footballer Neil Lennon.

Gregg Miller, 20, of Westholm Avenue, Rubislaw, Aberdeen, and Neil MacLeod, 19, of Airlie Street, Hyndland, Glasgow, were charged with shouting sectarian remarks at the former Northern Ireland international.

It is alleged that they conducted themselves in a disorderly manner and committed a breach of the peace in Great Western Road, Glasgow, earlier this month.

They were also accused of assaulting the 31-year-old footballer, spitting on him repeatedly, kicking and punching him on the body and butting him on the face to his injury.

The two accused made a brief appearance at Glasgow Sheriff Court on Thursday.

A lawyer told the court that defence inquiries were still continuing.

Sheriff Craig Scott QC continued the case without plea until next month.

Mr Miller and Mr MacLeod were ordained to appear in court on that occasion.
