Man admits racially abusing Glasgow nightclub attendant

A man has admitted racially abusing a nightclub toilet attendant telling him "this is Scotland not Africa" during an incident in Glasgow.

John Keaney, 31, from Clydebank, was charged with acting in a racially aggravated manner at Campus nightclub in December 2013.

Glasgow Sheriff Court heard he called Olukunle Ogunzola a racially offensive term after being told to pay for mouthwash.

He will be sentenced next month.

Keaney, also admitted assaulting another man, Connor McFadden, while in the club on Sauciehall Street by punching him on the head.

A not guilty plea of assaulting a further man, Robert McFadden, by attempting to punch him on the head was accepted by prosecutors.

Sheriff Linda Ruxton ordered a background report be carried out before sentence is passed.

Kearney acts as a senior co-ordinator of Clydebank's Y-sort it club - a project working with young people between the ages of 12 and 25 in West Dunbartonshire.
