Police have reportedly launched an investigation after an incident in which a bottle was thrown at Aberdeen fans during their opening game with Rangers at Pittodrie.

Witnesses posted on social media stating that an empty bottle of Glen’s vodka was thrown into the Aberdeen end - landing “within centimetres” of a child - after the home side equalised in the dying minutes of the game.
