Glasgow gangsters put bounty on head of balaclava pair behind attack on Steven 'Bonzo' Daniel's home

Two men believed to behind an attack on a Glasgow gangster's home have a bounty on their heads.

The pair are understood to be brothers and responsible for ramming a car into the £340,000 home belonging to Steven 'Bonzo' Daniel's partner, Avril Connell earlier this week.

The drama unfolded when the balaclava-clad men drove a Mitsubishi through the garden and into the porch at the Bishopbriggs property last Tuesday night, the Daily Record reports. Part of the porch wall was caved in and the guttering melted after the motor burst into flames.

A female relative of Bonzo was understood to have been inside watching telly at the time of the attack.

Now it is claimed that high-ranking members of the Daniel clan have put up a four-figure sum for information on the whereabouts of the brothers.

A gangland source told the Record: "The Daniels are absolutely livid that something so serious has happened to someone so important.

"As always happens with things like this, the guys responsible make themselves scarce. The brothers have gone to ground but the Daniels are desperate to find them. They want to know where they are and where they've gone and they're prepared to pay to find out."

Bonzo, who is also known as Steven Peebles, suffered serious facial wounds after being attacked with a machete following a high-speed car chase in May 2017 after a wave of violence between the Lyons and Daniel families erupted the previous December.

The six thugs behind the attack - which saw his tongue shredded and his teeth and jaw bone exposed, leaving medics believing he'd been shot - were jailed for more than 100 years.

Police have confirmed they are now investigating the crash and officers are now appealing to the public for information that may help to establish the circumstances around the incident.

A Police Scotland spokesperson said: "Around 9.45pm on Tuesday, November 15, police were called to an incident in John Marshall Drive, Glasgow where a vehicle struck a house and the vehicle went on fire. Police and Scottish Fire and Rescue Service attended the incident.

"There were no reports of any injuries. Enquiries are ongoing to establish the circumstances surrounding this incident and anyone with information should contact 101 with reference number 3545 of November 15."
