Lennon ‘bombers’ on trial
TWO men charged with conspiring to murder Celtic manager Neil Lennon will stand trail.
The pair allegedly sent letter bombs to Lennon ( above), former MSP Trish Godman, lawyer Paul McBride QC and the offices of Cairde Na Heriann — a friends of Ireland organisation.
Trevor Muirhead, 43, and Neil McKenzie, 41, are charged with sending devices with the intention that the contents would ignite and explode when opened, causing severe injury and death.
They denied the charges at Glasgow High Court and will stand trial in November.
The pair are accused of sending Lennon an improvised bomb at the Celtic FC training centre at Lennoxtown.
The package had a plastic bottle with tri-acetone tri-peroxide with a wire attached and a plastic bag containing a bag of nails and a watch component.
