Hugh Wade began his attacks on the girl at an address in Springburn in August 2008, when she was 11-years-old. The abuse continued until she was 14.

The 48-year-old, from Cumbernauld, denied the charge but was convicted at the High Court in Glasgow.

Judge Kenneth Maciver QC ordered Wade be supervised for two years following his release from prison.
