Detectives have released an image of two men they want to speak to following a violent assault in a pub.

A 48-year-old man was treated in hospital for a facial injury following the attack at the Allison Arms in Pollokshaws Road in the Pollokshields area of Glasgow.

Police said people in the pub were shocked by the level of violence involved in the incident, which happened at around 9.30pm on Saturday May 21.

The first man is described as white, in his 20s and of large build with short dark hair. He was wearing a red T-shirt at the time of the incident.

The second man is white, in his 50s, with dark hair, and was wearing a blue polo shirt under a dark jacket.
