Detective Sergeant Keith Taylor, from Police Scotland, said: “Both O’Dochertys subjected this man to a violent attack which has had lasting impact on the life of the victim.

“They will now face the consequences of their brutal behaviour following this guilty verdict.

“While it cannot change what happened, this will hopefully provide some closure for the victim.”

The two men are due to be sentenced in Glasgow on Monday, March 28.
