Have your say

FORMER Hibs striker Garry O’Connor appeared in court in handcuffs as he admitted speeding at 100mph.

He pleaded guilty after being caught on the A74 near Lockerbie last year.

The Scotland star, who now plays Russian side Tom Tomsk, was fined a total of £750 and given five points on his licence,

A warrant for his arrest had been issued after he failed to appear for trial at Annan JP Court last month. O’Connor, 29, formerly of Gullane, East Lothian, appeared at Dumfries JP Court yesterday, handcuffed to a security guard.

He was fined £450 on the speeding charge and a further £300 for his failure to appear. He had initially denied the charge. His lawyer told the court he was driving to Birmingham at the time.
