A HIBS fan who invaded the pitch during yesterday’s Edinburgh derby said he wasn’t chasing the Hearts keeper or referee but his own team manager.

Richard Parry, 28, said he was heading to the dugout to confront Terry Butcher about their “gutless” 2-0 loss on Sunday when he was stopped.

A Hibs win at Tynecastle would have relegated their rivals. Police said a 28-year-old man had been arrested and charged. The procurator fiscal is considering the police’s report.
