Men who sent parcel bombs to Neil Lennon are arrested

Two guys that thought it would be a good idea to send mail bombs to Celtic manager Neil Lennon have been arrested for 5 years.  Aren't they handsome?


Trevor Muirhead and Neil McKenzie, both from Ayrshire, have been placed behind bars for sending the packages to Lennon because you just aren't allowed to do that kind of thing.  It's not on.  The fact that we have to have police for things like this honestly just blows my mind - why would you ever think it was a good idea to send a bomb to a fellow human?  You must grow out of stuff like this at some point.  Over football?!!  It's not even anything important.  It's not like they've been oppressed by some evil dictator and just want to make a political statement to try and achieve justice; their only motive is that because they support Rangers they are supposed to dislike 'the other guys'.

To make things even more idiotic, the explosives they sent were so fucking childlike that there was a 0% chance they could have gone off, as stated by a judge in court, presumably calling them wankers afterwards. There wasn't even a device capable of detonating what little explosives they had in the box.  They basically sent an alarm clock duct taped to some batteries because they saw it on Spongebob Squarepants.
