A 39-year-old man has been arrested in Derry by police investigating the 1994 murder of a man in Glasgow.

Lifelong Rangers fan Derek Sheerin, 24, was found strangled to death by three girls near the Glasgow Celtic Football ground in September of that year.

The 39-year-old was arrested in Derry on Tuesday morning as part of a joint operation by Police Scotland and the PSNI.

He has been taken to Glasgow for questioning.

Detective chief inspector Michael Harvey from Serious Crime Branch has appealed to people in Derry who have any information about the murder to contact detectives at Maydown using the non-emergency number 101.
