Hibs fans in match day clash arrests

Have your say

FIVE Hibs fans have been arrested after trouble following last month’s Scottish Cup match against Ayr United saw one man lose an ear.

There was “serious violent disorder” at Glasgow Central Station after the match, with one man taken to hospital and the severed body part found.

The five men, aged between 22 and 45, were held after early morning raids across the Capital yesterday. They are expected to appear in court tomorrow.

Six other men, aged between 24 and 48, were arrested at the scene of the clashes on March 10.

Detective Inspector Grant Cathcart, of the British Transport Police, said: “This was serious violent disorder in which one man was hospitalised. The violence was so extreme that a severed ear was also found at the scene.

“Football-related antisocial behaviour will not be tolerated and we will continue to work closely with all Scottish forces to take action.”
