POLICE have reported 15 Ajax fans to the procurator fiscal following a major disturbance in Glasgow before their team’s Europa League game against Celtic in November.

Seven people were injured - four of them seriously - after a large group of men targeted pubs used by Celtic fans in the Gallowgate area of the city.

Police had said that those responsible were dressed in black with hoods and scarves covering their faces.

Officers have since reported 14 men and one woman and it is understood that all are Dutch nationals.

A Police Scotland spokesman said: “Following extensive police enquiries, 14 men and one woman have been identified and will be the subject of a report to the Procurator Fiscal in connection with the incident.”

Celtic eventually lost the match with Ajax 2-1.
