“Listen, get off your bike or you will be stabbed,” McKee said.
McKee pleaded guilty in Glasgow Sheriff’s Court to assault and robbery.
Sheriff Andrew Kubey monitored McKee for 18 months.
McKee was tagged for nine months and kept indoors from 7pm to 7am.
An earlier hearing had said Mr Cunningham and a friend were cycling towards Celtic Park.
Prosecutor Laura Bradley said: “He was approached by McKee outside the front door.
He started talking to them about Celtic.
“McKee asked if he could buy his bike, and Mr Cunningham said no.”
McKee then threatened to get off the motorcycle.
Miss Bradley said: “He made a motion to pull his jumper into the belt area.
He said take off your motorcycle or I will attack you.
Mr Cunningham got off his bike before Mackie picked him up and ran to the Forge Shopping Center.
A 999 call was made and McKee was traced and arrested.
The motorcycle was recovered by Mr Cunningham, who received an anonymous message on social media.
