A man has been found guilty of assaulting singer Michelle McManus outside a Glasgow bar.

Derek McArthur, 41, was fined £350 at Glasgow’s Justice of the Peace Court for the attack outside the Linen pub in Shawlands in January 2017.

McArthur had denied the charge, claiming he had acted in self-defence.

The former winner of Pop Idol said she was left injured and an “absolute wreck” after the incident.
