Alan told the Daily Record : “I’m still a bit sore but I could be a lot worse. I was getting my things from Lidl and was on my way home.

“They rushed me to hospital and did a CT scan.

“I think that I’ve got four fractures on my face and the only thing I remember is him saying, ‘Have you had enough?’.

“My stroke was caused by a blood clot. My stroke leg is now about half the strength again, I have a severe limp and fall all over the place. My face is sticking away out a mile.

“I could actually see it in a shadow if I turned around and looked at the ground. I don’t want to go out any more.

“There was a big pool of blood outside the house and my milk was all spilt.

“The police camped outside his house and waited for hours to get him when he came back from work.”

The Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service confirmed that the man accused of the attack appeared at Glasgow Sheriff Court on Wednesday.

He made no plea and was released on bail as prosecutors investigate further.
