A crowd of protesters grew in size after the 1-1 draw, secured with a late Mohamed Elyounoussi equaliser after Chris Kane had opened the scoring, with chants of “sack the board” heard as a heavy police presence tried to keep the peace.

As the team bus started to leave the ground, fans were seen rushing towards it while objects could be heard hitting off the windows. The bus was able to leave the area without any further damage as Police Scotland officers rushed in to move supporters out of the way.
