A 23-year-old man has been banned from attending football matches for three years after attacking a man before a match between Aberdeen and Rangers.
Matthew Thomson, of Aberdeen, admitted assaulting his victim on January 21 in Glasgow before the match at Ibrox.
At Glasgow Sheriff Court on Friday he was given a football banning order.
The unprovoked attack was captured on CCTV from which Thomson was later identified by police.
Following the sentencing Barry Dickson, football liaison prosecutor for the west of Scotland, said: "The Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service is absolutely determined to play its part in confronting problems of violence associated with football matches for which there is no place in today's society.
"Whether the offences are at the football match itself, travelling to or from it, we will do all in our power to bring those who perpetrate such crimes to justice.
"Prosecutors will continue to prosecute anyone indulging in such behaviour with a zero-tolerance approach and reiterate the message that there is no place for bigotry and intolerance in modern Scotland."
Thomson will also carry out 200 hours of unpaid work.
