A Hibernian fan has been jailed for 100 days for aggressively confronting the Rangers captain, James Tavernier, during a match after jumping over the advertising hoardings and kicking away the ball.

Cottam sentenced Mack to 100 days in prison, reduced from 150 for his early guilty plea, and a football banning order lasting 10 years.

Cottam added: “The explanation that you were so intoxicated that you cannot remember the incident does you no credit, in a full football stadium it is an aggravating factor.” The incident happened less than a week after the Celtic player Scott Sinclair was almost hit by a glass bottle thrown from the crowd at Easter Road and two days before a Birmingham fan punched the Aston Villa captain, Jack Grealish, after invading the pitch.

“He is a man without any previous convictions and no contact with police, but clearly he has entered the criminal justice system in spectacular fashion,” he added.

Cameron Mack, who pleaded guilty to a breach of the peace charge following the incident at Easter Road in March, was also banned from attending any football game for 10 years.

Sheriff Adrian Cottam explained the prison sentence was “the only way to properly reflect society’s disapproval” in light of a number of concerning incidents at football grounds this season.

During the sentencing at Edinburgh Sheriff court, Cottam said: “We must consider the timing of the offence, at a time when all eyes are on trouble at football grounds.
