“The club reported the break in and theft to Police Scotland who are now investigating the matter.”

News of the police investigation comes around two days after an Instagram account with the name ‘bears.rfc’ posted a photo appearing to show three Partick Thistle flags being held up by masked individuals.

More than 8,000 people attended the Scottish Premiership match between Partick Thistle and Rangers, which finished in a 2-2 draw.

The two teams meet again tonight in the Betfred Cup quarter finals in a re-run of Friday night’s fixture.
