Scuffle of the week

Flamboyant Scottish QC and former vice-chairman of Rangers Football Club Donald Findlay stands accused of singing sectarian songs – a dangerous act in Glasgow where there is tense rivalry between Catholic supporters of Celtic and Protestant Rangers fans. Leading scots criminal lawyer Findlay, who was allegedly spotted at a post-match party singing The Sash, Follow Follow, Derry's Walls and The Billy Boys, is no stranger to controversy. He is the author of novel Three Verdicts, in which the Catholic characters are criminals and the heroes are Protestants, but he strenuously denies he is a bigot.
