A RAPIST left a victim handcuffed to a bed in Clydebank - and then went to play poker.

Richard McKillop repeatedly preyed on the woman and told jurors he never believed he had done anything "wrong".

The man and woman had earlier met on a dating site before the 57-year-old taxi driver put her through a harrowing ordeal.

McKillop was today convicted of raping the woman following a trial at the High Court in Glasgow.

Prosecutors stated the attacks happened between 2011 and 2013 at a flat in Clydebank.

McKillop was also found guilty of raping a second woman at the same address and at a house in Johnstone, Renfrewshire, between 2016 and 2019.

He was remanded in custody pending sentencing next month.

Jurors heard how the relationship had initially gone well until the first victim noticed a change in McKillop.

This would often be after he had played poker.

McKillop had told her that if there was "no sex" then she should "f*** off".

She told the trial: "It was his way or no way."

The woman recalled an incident when she found herself alone in the flat.

She said: "I woke up one morning handcuffed to the bed. No one was in sight.

"When he returned, he thought it was funny."

The court heard he had earlier walked out to play poker and left her.

The victim did not know for definite what had earlier happened, but she suspected she had been raped while asleep.

The woman based that on how she had felt when he preyed on her before.

The trial heard how McKillop, also of Clydebank, had used handcuffs on the woman at other times.

In his closing speech, prosecutor Alan Mackay: "This was not role play or consensual sex. It was rape."

The second victim described how McKillop had left her feeling like "a w***e".

They had also earlier met online. She was hit with a belt eight times and only carried out a sex act in fear of being hit again.

Prosecutor Mr MacKay said the evidence was a "graphic account and clear indication" McKillop did what he wanted.

He also said: "This is a man who does not and cannot appreciate what these women have gone through."

McKillop denied the accusations appearing to insist he was "some sort of victim" as the allegations apparently had an effect on his taxi licence.

He had been on bail during the trial, but was remanded by judge Lady Stacey.

Sentencing was deferred for reports and McKillop was put on the sex offenders list meantime.
