A rapist attacked a young woman then sent laughing emojis to a friend boasting of having sex with her.
John Thomson, 52, took advantage of his sleeping victim at his then-flat in Glasgow’s Yoker on July 19 2020.
He went on to mock the woman which also included him and a friend later having a “carry on” with her underwear which had been left behind.
Thomson – almost 30 years older than the victim – told jurors she had instigated sex with him that night.
But, he was found guilty of rape following a trial at the High Court in Glasgow.
Thomson, now of the city’s Knightswood, had been on bail, but was remanded in custody by judge Lady Stacey.
He will be sentenced in late March.
The attack happened after the victim and others had been at Thomson’s home.
She took unwell after drinking and went to Thomson’s bed.
It was there he went on to rape the woman, who was in no fit state to consent.
She later left the flat leaving some of her belongings behind before police were alerted.
Thomson told officers the woman was a “silly wee lassie” who had been “steaming drunk”.
He stated to his lawyer Sarah Livingstone during the trial that he was “very angry” at being accused of rape.
But, jurors heard how Thomson sent a crude WhatsApp message to a friend about sex with the victim along with three crying laughing emojis.
Prosecutor Alexander Sutherland put to him: “That is not the kind of message a person who is annoyed would send?”
The trial was also told the victim’s underwear had been found in the flat the morning after.
A friend of Thomson’s had then put the underwear on his head before they ended up in a bin bag.
Mr Sutherland stated to Thomson: “The evidence does not point to tale a of consensual sex.
“You got into bed with the woman…and had sex with her while she was intoxicated. You raped her.”
Thomson denied the accusation.
Sentencing was deferred for reports.
