WATCH Footie thug takes on child Hibernian fan as cup final violence boils
Thousands of Hibernian FC and Rangers fans streamed on to the pitch at the final whistle at Hampden Park after the Edinburgh team ended a 114-year wait for the cup trophy by beating Rangers. Hibs supporters rushed to the aid of the boy as he is lifted clean off his feet and his replica shirt pulled. In the footage the tiny lad finally runs free after another lout lands a blow on the idiot fan. Fiery pitch invaders also ripped up the goal posts and fought with opposition Rangers fans. Rangers captain Lee Wallace was allegedly kicked and punched by Hibernian supporters. Police Scotland have arrested 11 people in connection with the violence. "Rangers Football Club is shocked at the disgraceful behaviour of Hibs fans at full time," said the club in a statement."Rangers players and staff were assaulted by these fans who invaded the pitch and in the interests of their safety could not return to the pitch for the medal presentation. "There can be no place for the violent behaviour witnessed at the end of the final and Rangers fully expect the Scottish Football Association and Police Scotland to launch an investigation to find out where security measures failed.
