Sickening scenes as Scotland’s Shame battle with Wigan fans in Glasgow City Centre

A tabloid newspaper today has a video which captures the sickening scenes of violence that happened yesterday as Wigan fans were involved in a running battle with Scotland’s Shame near Central Station.

Wigan were in Glasgow for a pre-season friendly which they lost 3-0 but there was nothing friendly about these exchanges which bring back memories of their supporters in previous confrontations with English sides.

And of course their most famous of all nights happened in England – in Manchester in May 2008 when their old club reached the UEFA Cup Final against Zenit St Petersburg and they wrecked the city centre and almost killed a policeman after a big screen TV failed to work.

Yesterday’s violence involved around 70 supporters and involved bottle throwing, head kicking and throwing objects like outdoor tables at their rival hooligans.

Police Scotland were there in numbers but struggled to contain the violence and the video does not show any signs of arrests being made.

The Rangers Ultras group, The Union Bears, failed to show up at Ibrox for the match with Wigan and their supporters were asking questions last night about their surprising absence.
