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.
Shoukd have just

Doubke Take to his fukin head

probably end up that way any way
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.
Worked in shortroods as a council warden when this guy was in his teens(2004-9), him and all his pals were all mental, many a story I could tell you lol
Not surprised with this to be honest used to be a daily occurance till most of it was pulled down

Used to live near there. I assume it's still standing.
In my family when someone is stupid we still say I'll be putting you in Leverndale.
Most of the old building isn't standing anymore but in its place there is many wards built over last 15 years.
I found myself spending a month in one the wards last year tbh..couldn't thank the staff enough to be fair.

This has got to be the ultimate exhibition of tremendous Tim tomfoolery.

Reminds me of the episode of Minder when the black lads took over the launderette. When asked by the police who they were, they made up the name "Independent Rastafarian Army". The bold Terry then chins them, saying "IRA" , have you thought this through?

Given the prevalence of that mhob in the arts, and their sympathisers, expect them to be working on a script where this fudd is the downtrodden hero, rebelling against the British oppressors. I just hope Robert Carlyle turns down the lead role.
