GLASGOW, Scotland -- Two men have been found guilty of sending letter bombs to Celtic manager Neil Lennon and two prominent fans of the Glasgow club.

Trevor Muirhead, 44, and Neil McKenzie, 42, were found guilty of conspiracy to assault Lennon, Celtic-supporting Scottish lawmaker Trish Godman and the late Paul McBride, a lawyer who has represented Lennon.

The packages were intercepted before reaching their targets and did not explode.

The parcels were sent in the weeks after a tumultuous Scottish Cup match between Glasgow rivals Celtic and Rangers in March, when three Rangers players were sent off. Lennon and Rangers assistant manager Ally McCoist became involved in a heated exchange after the final whistle.
