The Royal Mail have confirmed that they have intercepted a package sent from Northern Ireland containing bullets that was addressed to Celtic winger Paddy McCourt, just days after a sorting office in County Antrim discovered packets containing bullets that were addressed to Bhoys manager Neil Lennon and midfielder Niall McGinn – it should come as no shock that all three men hail from Northern Ireland.
The package addressed to McCourt was discovered by staff at the Royal Mail sorting office in the east end of Glasgow. Police were immediately alerted, with the packages removed for forensic examination.
Strathclyde Police also confirmed that an investigation into the sectarian threats has now been launched.
