He is barely able to open his eyes but his condition is stable at Glasgow Royal Infirmary.

A close friend said Paul, who is known as ‘Baz’, is adamant he does not want to return home. 

The friend told the Daily Record: ‘It’s absolutely disgusting that someone would do this to anyone let alone Baz, who wouldn’t do you a bad turn.

‘He is well known in the area but he is adamant he doesn’t want to return to his home now, and you can’t blame him.

‘They have taken advantage of a vulnerable individual. He would never hurt anyone so why would they want to do this to him?’

 The friend added that Paul is gutted but the psychological damage done could be more of a problem than his physical injuries.

It’s believed that Paul knew the people who attacked him and had refused them entry to his house.

It is alleged that they then forced there way into his home before carrying out the horrific attack.  

His friend said that Paul can’t see at the moment because he can’t open his eyes but medics have told him that his sight ‘should be okay’.  

Last night a crowdfunding page set up by a stranger after pictures of Paul’s injuries were shared on social media had already raised £630.
