West Scotland MSP Ross Greer is one of the latest public figures to be banned from entering Russia. 

The Green MSP was included in a new group of 39 British journalists and politicians banned from entering the country. 

These include Sir Kier Starmer, David Cameron and Piers Morgan, who MSP Greer has enjoyed a controversial relationship with.

The West Scotland MSP said: "I've just been banned from Russia, please send thoughts and prayers at this difficult time. 

"I've always said that if i was going to be sanctioned by the Russians i'd want it to be alongside my close friend and political confidante Piers Morgan."
