The fine handed down was for £500.

The fine was handed down to Thomas Morin by Glasgow Sheriff Court.

He had pleaded guilty to the charge under Section 38 of the Criminal Justice and Licensing act.

The arresting officer, PC Alan Kavanagh from the British Transport Police said: “Targeting anyone with intimidating abuse because of who they are is disgusting and we will never tolerate it.

“Our officers were patrolling the station when we heard his comments so were quickly able to detain him and bring him before the courts.

“I am pleased that Morin was handed this fine and I hope he thinks again before acting in such an offensive way.

“If anyone ever experiences homophobic or hate related abuse I would encourage them to report it to BTP. You can send a text discreetly to 61016 and we will investigate.”
