Two men jailed for sending parcel bombs to Celtic manager Neil Lennon and other high-profile supporters of the club have lost an attempt to have their convictions overturned.
Trevor Muirhead, 44, and Neil McKenzie, 43, were jailed for five years in April last year for conspiring to assault Lennon, former MSP Trish Godman and the late QC Paul McBride by sending devices they believed were capable of exploding and causing severe injury.
McKenzie, from Saltcoats in Ayrshire, and Muirhead, from Kilwinning in Ayrshire, tried to have their convictions quashed at the Court of Criminal Appeal in Edinburgh, where a hearing in the case was held in December.
Their legal teams argued there was insufficient evidence to allow the jury at the trial to find that the pair believed the packages were capable of exploding.
But three senior appeal judges ruled that both convictions should stand.
During a brief hearing, judge Lord Menzies told the court: "These appeals are refused."
