Barclay, 33, of Falkirk, Stirlingshire, appeared at Manchester’s Minshull Street crown court for sentence after earlier admitting the fraud.

The judge adjourned the case until next month for a psychiatric report but warned “it doesn’t mean there won’t be a custodial sentence”.

City said no clients suffered a loss in the fraud.

Recorder Lowe told Barclay, who cried in the dock, that an adjournment didn’t necessarily mean she’d be spared a custodial sentence.

He said: “All sentencing options are open.

“By putting this case back it doesn’t mean there won’t be a custodial sentence.”

Barclay will be sentenced at Manchester Crown Court on September 21.

A City spokesperson said: “Fiona Barclay was suspended immediately and subsequently dismissed when evidence of her fraud was uncovered.
