An Aberdeen fan who ran on to the pitch at Hampden Park during the League Cup final and kicked the ball will spend Christmas behind bars.
Gavin Elphinstone vaulted from a stand and made his way on to the field where he intercepted a pass from Celtic keeper Scott Bain to a team mate.
The 25-year-old, from Aberdeen, was swiftly removed from the pitch by stewards during the Hoops’ 1-0 win over the Dons.
Elphinstone appeared from custody earlier this month at Glasgow Sheriff Court to admit breaching the peace on December 2 by conducting himself in a disorderly manner, entering the field of play and waving a scarf above his head, running towards a player and kicking the ball.
Elphinstone also pled guilty to assaulting two police officers by pushing and kicking one on the body and kicking another on the body.
He returned for sentencing yesterday, with Sheriff Ian Fleming jailing him for 140 days and handing him an eight-month football banning order.
