A 20-year-old man has appeared in court charged with murdering another man.

Liam Strang, from Cranhill, allegedly struck Stephen McGinlay on the head and body with a knife or similar instrument on St George's Road on 2 October.

Mr McGinlay, 26, died three days later.

A second man, Brian Gallacher, 27, from Cadder, is accused of assaulting Ryan Mason in the same place on that date.

They made no plea or declaration and were remanded in custody.

Both men appeared at Glasgow Sheriff Court and will appear again next week for a full committal hearing.
