An SNP protestor who has campaigned for Margaret Ferrier has been suspended by the SNP.
James Scott was part of a group who confronted Scottish Labour leader Jim Murphy in Glasgow on Monday afternoon.
Mr Scott has been pictured campaigning for the Rutherglen and Hamilton West candidate during the election campaign.
He has been suspended alongside Piers DoughtyBrown.
The pair were part of the crowd who shouted “red Tories out”at Mr Murphy, who was in Glasgow with comedian Eddie Izzard, while scuffles between rival factions also broke out.
A spokesman for the SNP said:“Mr DoughtyBrown has been placed under administrative suspension from the SNP, as was James Scott.
“The SNP will always act on these matters - unlike Labour, who have still taken no action against senior Labour activist Ian Smart for his vile tweets.
“As Nicola Sturgeon has said, this is a fantastic election campaign and we should all be out there putting forward positive messages and engaging constructively with the people of Scotland.”
Rutherglen’s Labour MSP, James Kelly, said Ms Ferrier should distance herself from Mr Scott.
He said:“Mr Scott has been a regular feature of Ms Ferrier’s election team and should play no further part in her campaign.”
Ms Ferrier did not wish to comment.
