The uncle of shamed boxer Scott Harrison has been found hanging from a tree. A walker discovered the body of Jack McGill, 52, in woods early on Sunday. Former WBO featherweight champion Harrison, 30, was yesterday said to be "very upset" at the news. McGill, who lived alone in East Kilbride, was found in the Cathkin Braes in the south of Glasgow. It's believed he had become depressed after falling out of favour with Harrison's family. Ex-pro fighter McGill, the brother of Harrison's mum Agnes, was facing trial in Spain alongside his nephew on charges of assaulting a cop and trying to steal a car.
