An Aberdeen man has admitted posting a threatening Twitter comment after Celtic's chief executive said the club did not need Rangers.

Ryan MacDonald, 21, wrote "Lawwell needs a bullet simples!!!" about Peter Lawwell in February.

He admitted breaching the peace by sending a message of a threatening or offensive nature.

Sheriff Wendy Sheehan deferred sentence at Glasgow Sheriff Court for more information about the case.
