On his Facebook page, the former Celtic star and father-of-three has spoken of his frustration declaring "enough is enough"

He wrote: "Well after months of incidents and criminal damage to my car, the local teenage low life scum around this area stooped to another disgusting act at 10-30pm last night, after knocking at the door of our home where myself and my three daughters live asking the whereabouts of my youngest who was stopping at a friends. He then went on to cause more damage to my car and then whilst we were watching TV in the downstairs living room, a brick was thrown through the large window causing extensive damage and more importantly could have killed someone. The police have been informed yet again. I'm not going to name the 17-year-old local scum but we are now in the process of looking to move house. What has the world come to. Absolutely gutted. Enough is enough. Hopefully, the police who were brilliant do their job. It's hard enough bringing three kids up on your own, doing your best and having to put up with this."

Anyone with information should call police on 101.
