A man has been jailed for life after being convicted of murder over a fatal stabbing in Glasgow.

Raymond Sinclair, 27, attacked 25-year-old Gerry Dobbin at a property in Old Rutherglen Road, in the city's Gorbals area, in February last year.

He was out on licence at the time, having been jailed for four years in 2009 for assault and attempted robbery.

At the High Court in Glasgow, Sinclair was told he must serve a minimum of 16 years before being eligible for parole.

It emerged after Sinclair's conviction that he was also jailed for four years in 2003 for assault before receiving a two year-term for drug offences months later.

Jailing him, Judge Lord Boyd said it was clear the he had a "propensity for violence".

As Sinclair was being led to the cells, some of Mr Dobbin's relatives and friends shouted "bye bye".

Sinclair shouted "easy peasy" as he prepared to begin his life sentence.
