Footage emerged of riot police charging at Rangers fans as they stood outside bars in the centre of Maribor.

A Rangers fan tweeted that the police had used pepper spray, while the footage showed a number of fans being struck by batons.

Steven Gerrard’s men gave their supporters something to celebrate as the team earned a 0-0 draw which gave them a 3-1 win on aggregate to ensure progression to the play-off round of the Europa League qualifiers.

The game, however, was momentarily held up when objects thrown in the vicinity of Rangers goalkeeper Allan McGregor had to be cleared.
