Po­lice are hunt­ing for the vi­cious thug who left a 21-yearold in crit­i­cal care fol­low­ing an in­ci­dent in Ruther­glen.

Jack Mcin­tyre was vi­o­lently as­saulted out­side the Glen­cairn So­cial Club on Glas­gow Road at 5.45pm on Satur­day. He was rushed to the Queen El­iz­a­beth Univer­sity Hos­pi­tal, where he was treated for a bleed on the brain. Mr Mcin­tyre’s con­cerned rel­a­tives used so­cial me­dia to urge any­one who may have wit­nessed the as­sault to con­tact po­lice.

Jack’s grand­mother, Adele Mcin­tyre, wrote on Face­book: “I need help. Young Jack was in the Glen­cairn Club tonight and got at­tacked.

“He is in the Queen El­iz­a­beth crit­i­cal unit. The doc­tor says he’s been kicked to the face, fell and banged his head on the kerb and had a seizure. It has caused a bleed to the brain.

“Thanks for all your com­ments and prayers, means a lot.”

Jack is mak­ing a speedy re­cov­ery and was due to leave hos­pi­tal on Mon­day af­ter­noon as the Re­former went to press. He told us he has lit­tle mem­ory of what hap­pened or what pro­voked the at­tack, but added: “I just want to thank all my friends and fam­ily for the kind mes­sages that were sent to me and my fam­ily.

“It means a lot to me all be­cause of this hor­ri­ble in­ci­dent.”

In­spec­tor Robert Bryce of Ruther­glen Po­lice said: “We are car­ry­ing out en­quiries at Glen­cairn So­cial Club, which is sup­port­ing us with our in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

“Those who were there and wit­nessed the in­ci­dent, we would en­cour­age them to get in touch via 101 or Crimestop­pers where in­for­ma­tion can be given anony­mously.”
