Passengers on a Highland train were so offended by the singing of two drunk Rangers fans that they moved carriage.
Graham Smith, 28, and Stuart McCraken, 42, were charged after their raucous antics on a train north of Inverness disturbed passengers on February 14.
The conductor noticed that the pair had both been drinking when they boarded the train, Wick Sheriff Court heard on Friday.
As the journey continued the pair got louder and louder and began to sing Rangers football songs, ignoring requests from fellow passengers to quieten down.
Before they eventually stopped singing, 16 passengers - including children - moved to another carriage.
Smith, of Thurso, admitted behaving in a threatening or abusive manner and was fined £800.
A football banning order was considered by the court, but the idea rejected when it emerged that Smith had never been to a game before.
McCracken, also of Thurso, did not appear at court but his solicitor pleaded guilty on his behalf. Sentence was deferred until May 25.
