A TEEN hooligan caught chanting bigoted abuse after sneaking into a football match through a gate for disabled fans has been fined.

James Begbie, 19, had already been banned by Hearts from attending home matches for threatening Celtic fans on an away trip, when he sang the sectarian chant during the club’s 2-0 win away at Dunfermline Athletic.

Sheriff Ian Dunbar yesterday fined Begbie £200 at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.
