A thug took a pot shot at a railway contractor with an air rifle while he was working on the main line yesterday morning.
The 48-year-old man was inspecting tracks in Greenhill at around 8 a.m. on Sunday when he felt sharp pain in his leg.
He was taken to Glasgow Royal Infirmary for treatment and was later released.
British Transport Police (BTP) are appealing for information.
A search of the immediate area, which is close to houses in Broomhill Road, has taken place and inquiries, including door-to-door, are ongoing to find the person responsible.
Detective Constable Andrew Egan, the BTP officer in charge of the investigation, is appealing for witnesses to come forward.
He said: “This was a completely random attack on someone at their work. Anyone who has information regarding who was responsible should contact BTP as a matter of urgency.”
