Third Celtic player sent bullets in post
Thursday 13 January 2011
Celtic midfielders Paddy McCourt and Niall McGinn are "shocked and disappointed" at having bullets sent to them, but neither will allow the threats to obstruct their respective careers, according to the players' agent.
A package containing bullets addressed to McCourt at Celtic Park was discovered yesterday by Royal Mail workers in Glasgow, and follows similar packages sent to McGinn, 23, and club manager Neil Lennon last week. All were posted in Northern Ireland.
"They are determined this won't derail their efforts on the park," Gerry Carlile, the players' representative said.
