RUMOURS of a popular fast food chain opening up in Barrhead have been debunked.

The Barrhead News was contacted after a Facebook page was set up under the name “McDonald’s Barrhead”, stating that it was “coming soon”.

However, a spokesperson for McDonald’s Restaurants Ltd quashed the social media chatter, adding that the page was “not a representative” of the brand.

They said: “We’ve currently got no plans to open a restaurant in Barrhead. 

“The page has not been set-up by McDonald’s and is not representative of our brand.”
