The pair have bad blood between them but McDonald is understood to have attended because of a friendship with another member of the family.

One onlooker said armed robber McDonald, 50, was headbutted.

A source said: "McDonald got a sore one in the face and there was a bit of jostling.

"McKenzie didn't think his rival should have presented himself at a family funeral."

McKenzie, 40, from Haghill, Glasgow, and McDonald, have been on opposite sides in gangland feuds.

McDonald was associated with George Redmond and John McGuire John McGuire is the name of:
