A PAISLEY man admitted to an armed siege with police officers where he asked for Brendan Rodgers to be brought back as Celtic manager - and demanded a bag of cans.

Shaun McConville held his hands up over the events of Monday, March 18, at Paisley Sheriff Court today

He claimed he had hostages in the Springbank Road property and would kill them - and would only leave if officers killed him.

The incident was captured on camera at the time and went viral.

We told how pics and videos on social media showed a specialist negotiator outside a block of flats.

The man could be heard shouting: "I want a bag of cans, I want Brendan Rodgers back, I want a job."

He was later detained by cops

He was also taken to hospital for assessment.

A police spokesperson said at the time: "At 11.15pm on Monday, March 18, officers received reports of a male causing a disturbance on Springbank Road, Paisley

mum's pub



"Armed police and a negotiator were dispatched to the scene.

"At 00.05 a 31-year-old man was detained and taken for hospital assessment.

""No one was injured. The 31-year-old was then arrested and charged.

Asked for a job, clearly the tarrier is pleading insanity.

Remember this from a few months ago, I opened this thread expecting him to have been offered his job back at the SFA.

Apparently this boy had some serious stuff going on and clearly had a bit of a breakdown. Apparently the guy that filmed it and more or less made it viral had the boys mates at his door. This was all hearsay and rumour in the town.

Not sympathetic to him or that, he's a taig rat, but that was the stories going round.

The guy wi the burst bags.... Wow. Funny to watch but jeezo.
It always seems to be the mentalists that have the celtic tops on.

Don't know if the guy is a horrible bitter cretin or a normal working class football fan but if he is the later I genuinely hope he is OK. Quite clearly going through a shite time if he is demanding a job etc. and it just strikes me as another young guy struggling with life.

Agree with that, it still sits uneasy with me that this guys mental breakdown was shared all over social media for people to laugh at. Tim or not can't say I find it that funny.

yep he's friends with and related to a fair few dodgy folk from shortroods and they weren't best pleased when it was filmed and posted, different story had it been someone not known to them, they'd have been pissing themselves laughing like the rest of us. He was put into low moss after it
