Aberdeen fan ran on pitch and attacked police at cup final
Gavin Elpinstone vaulted the stand and made his way on to the field during Celtic v Aberdeen.
An Aberdeen fan has admitted running on the pitch at Hampden during Sunday's cup final as well as assaulting police officers.
Gavin Elpinstone vaulted the stand and made his way on to the field where he intercepted a pass from Celtic keeper Scott Bain to a team mate.
The 25-year-old from Aberdeen made it past stewards but was removed from the pitch during the Hoops' 1-0 win over the Dons.
Elphinstone appeared from custody at Glasgow Sheriff Court where he was represented by solicitor Lee Doyle.
He admitted breaching the peace on December 2 by conducting himself in a disorderly manner, entering the field of play and waving a scarf above his head, running towards a player and kicking the ball.
He also pleaded guilty to assaulting two police officers.
Sheriff Ian Miller deferred sentence until later this month and remanded Elphinstone in custody.
Both sets of fans accused each other of throwing flares at Hampden.
Some Celtic fans have also alleged pyrotechnics were thrown from the Aberdeen end towards stewards and police.
