The Hibernian fan who confronted Rangers captain James Tavernier on the side of the pitch during a match has admitted to a breach of the peace charge.
Cameron Mack, of Port Seton, climbed over an advertisement hoarding at Easter Road on Friday night.
He kicked the ball away from the Gers defender before confronting Tavernier.
Mack has been banned from attending any football ground in Scotland and will be sentenced to prison next month.
Hibs chief executive Leeann Dempster condemned Mack’s actions, labelling them as “completely and utterly unacceptable”.
She also vowed the culprit would be banned from Hibernian’s home ground for life.
