Joseph Martin, 40, was convicted of culpable homicide.
A not proven verdict was returned for David Graham, 46.
His family has now released a statement following the jury’s guilty verdict.
It read: “As a family we have sat through weeks of harrowing evidence which will stay with us for the rest of our lives. Gary didn’t deserve to die that night and especially in the horrendous, brutal way it happened.
“Gary was a loving and protective father and husband who was completely committed to his family and we will always cherish the time we had together. These men will never appreciate just how much they have ripped our family apart and no punishment will ever be enough for robbing us of him.
“We would ask for our privacy to be respected at this difficult time.”
