Car thief can keep Rangers date

Rangers play Villarreal in Spain on 7 March
A teenage car thief has had his sentence delayed to allow him to watch Rangers play in Europe.

Alexander McLeod, 17, from the Drumoyne area of Glasgow, admitted taking a car and driving without a licence. Sentence was initially deferred until 8 March.

But his lawyer returned to Glasgow Sheriff Court after McLeod's mother informed him that her son was due to be in Spain after watching Rangers.

The case was adjourned until after he returns from the Villarreal match.

Sheriff John Newall agreed after McLeod's lawyer said his client had already booked up for what could be the Ibrox club's last "competitive" game for some time.

My thoughts are:
  1. He should be sentenced to watch all the rest of the season's worthless games too!
  2. Was Mr Findlay representing him?
  3. Nice to see the justiciary are being tough on crime and criminals - wouldn't want to inconvenience the poor loon would we - not like presumably he did to the car owner.
  4. Nice to see that his ma still looks after him though!
