Spotted: Rangers fans clash with police as objects hurled at Napoli players after Champions League defeat at Ibrox

A group of Rangers fans were spotted confronting police and stewards at the end of the 3-0 defeat to Napoli at Ibrox in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

Italian journalist Salvatore Amoroso shared a video clip via his personal Twitter account which appears to show Gers fans confronting Napoli’s Mathis Olivera as he and his teammates warmed down following the action-packed group stage showdown.

Around eight seconds into the clip, you can clearly see an object being hurled in the direction of Oliveira as he runs away to carry on his post-match paces.

Writing in Italian, Spazio Napoli editor-in-chief Amoroso wrote: “At the end of Rangers v Napoli, some home fans tried to catch up with the Napoli players who were doing muscle activation after the game. [Stopped] by the police.”


There’s a minority of Rangers fans who seem to do whatever they can to bring shame to the name of the club.

What’s the point in this kind of moronic behaviour?

Nothing is ever going to come of it with police and stewards in the way, it’s just a bunch of idiots who feel as though they’re big and strong by confronting someone who probably cannot even understand what they’re saying.

And for the fan who threw an item in the direction of the Napoli players, you deserve to be banned.

We need to try and flush these idiots out of Ibrox.

Whether it’s throwing missiles at players or signing banned songs, there always seems to be something going on in the stands that opens us up to criticism.

Some of our fans will point the finger across Glasgow and yes, Celtic’s banner about the Queen on Wednesday night was disgraceful.

But we need to do a lot better at getting our own house in order.
