More than 300 CCTV images were released by officers attempting to track down those involved in clashes between rival fans on the pitch after Hibernian’s 3-2 victory over Rangers on 21 May 2016.

But 12 months on, according to the Scottish Sun, police have snared just 184 offenders - with more than 110 as yet unidentified.

Police are unlikely to issue any more photographs as part of Operation Tonish, which saw officers combing through CCTV footage and mobile phone pictures in the wake of the incident.
