They are accused of attempting to murder 37-year-old Mr Daniel who was attacked in his car.

Andrew Sinclair and Michael Sutherland, 31, are also accused of attempting to murder Ryan Fitzsimmons on 28 April in Clydebank

The five men made no pleas when they appeared at Glasgow Sheriff Court and were remanded in custody.

They are expected to appear again next week for a full committal hearing.
