Incidents have caused concern at Easter Road, the most recent on Friday night during Rangers’ 3-0 victory. The visitors’ left-back Borna Barisic was nearly hit by a glass bottle thrown from the East Stand as he lay on the pitch awaiting treatment.
A statement from Hibs last night reported that a review of CCTV footage had identified four men involved in throwing missiles, including a bottle. The footage has been passed to Police Scotland.
“This is a good football club,” said Ross. “I get why there is so much focus on this issue. I don’t think any club wants that to become their reputation.”
Gray stressed: “There’s no place for it in football. The fans are passionate, they get behind the team but there’s that little minority who let them down.
“If you throw a bottle at anyone in the street you could end up in jail, football is no different.”
