RYAN Harbinson, formerly on St Johnstone’s books, posted a comment about torching a mosque following the murder of soldier Lee Rigby.
A FORMER football starlet was fined £1000 yesterday for a Facebook comment about torching a mosque after the murder of soldier Lee Rigby.
Ex-St Johnstone youth player Ryan Harbinson, 19, posted: “Any one up for starting our own series of terrorist attacks, little bit of petroleum would set fire to the mosque nicely.”
It was reported to police on May 23 last year, the day after Fusilier Rigby was killed by two Islamic extremists in London.
Falkirk Sheriff Court heard the Grangemouth teenager’s football career ended when he was stabbed in 2011.
He blamed the Facebook comments on post traumatic stress disorder and said he “very much regrets” it.
Harbinson was found guilty of breach of the peace by Sheriff John Mundy.
