CASUALS from England are planning a revenge attack over the UEFA Cup final riot.

Police have been tipped off that the thugs will fight running battles on the streets of Glasgow before Rangers' crunch Champions League clash against Man Utd next month.

It's believed thugs from south of the Border will target Gers fans on Paisley Road West.

The police and other agencies met last week to discuss their tactics.

A police source said last night: "Intelligence has been received about these supposed fans coming to Glasgow for the return leg of the Champions League game."

The threat comes after Gers fans rioted at the 2008 Uefa Cup final in Manchester. Around 175,000 Gers supporters had travelled to the game.

Chaos erupted when a big screen at Piccadilly Gardens in the city centre broke down just after kick-off.

Fans clashed with riot police, leaving a trail of damage in the city centre as their side lost to Russians Zenit St Petersburg.

Eleven of the troublemakers were jailed by a judge who described the events as "the wor st night of v iolence and destruction suffered by Manchester city centre since the Blitz".

Cops in Lancashire had feared a repeat when Rangers and United were drawn in the same group this season.

Fans attending Rangers's 0-0 draw with United at Old Trafford in September had to gather in Wigan before being bused to the match under police escort.

There were running battles in Paisley Road West the last time United came to Ibrox in the Champions League. Thousands of ticketless fans filled pubs in the city centre and around the stadium in October 2003.

Cops estimated there were 7000 English supporters in the city. Only 2500 had tickets.

A total of 50 arrests were made by police that night - half of them on Paisley Road West before the game.

Rangers Suppor ters Associat ion general secretary John Macmillan said last night: "My advice to all fans would be that if you hear about or see any trouble to report it to the police as soon as possible and to avoid it at all costs.

"The vast majority of all football fans do not want any trouble and I hope that there is none at this match and it is the last thing that we want."

The police source said a "si lver" meeting had been held about the threat .

"Silver" refers to the second level of a three-tier police command structure.

A silver commander is the tactical chief for a particular event, normally a senior officer who would be based in a police nerve centre, such as a purpose-built command vehicle, from where they would direct operations.

The recent silver grade meeting at Strathclyde Police saw the operations team meet agencies such as British Transpor t Pol ice, other emergency services and public transport officials to discuss the intelligence report on the planned trouble.

Superintendent Jim Watson of the city's G division said: "Strathclyde Police is experienced in policing major football matches and, as with every major event or game, it will be policed appropriately.

"Our priority is the safety of everyone going to the game and that they enjoy the experience and return home safely."

The game is on Wednesday, November 24, at 7.45pm.

To me it's a non story tbh.

I know one the Man U boys who was well into their mob at the time they came up. The first time I met him in Hong Kong few years ago he said, "A Rangers man? You lot were absent last time I was in Glasgow".

I have no clue if this is true or not, but lets hope if they turn up this they get it - from anyone.

They would get beaten up if they tried it, just like last time.

Just like last time?? The ran amok down the PR mate??? Where you there? I was and they took over several pubs whilst our "casuals" were supposedly in the town or stuck at a subway station. Normal fans were fighting with them.

What Man U forget to say is they were in Glasgow from 10am onwards. We had lads at work, family etc. By the time we all got together the cops were well on top, plus we had a total fuck up that is still talked about today, in fact the whole day was a fuck up by us. We were at Cessnock when the Mancs went past but were well held in by the Polis.

They also forget to mention that when we had a 40 on 40 with them up the town about 10-11o'clock they were well and truly batter and it was their main players

Sorry Bear, I normally agree with most of what you say but over man utd , i cant.

The ICF were a shambles that day. Its hardly the most dastardly or cunning plan for everyone to jump on the subway to meet them is it?? I think its pretty obvious that stations would be full of cops. Its also obvious that Man Utd would be there all day and as for the cops being on top. it didnt stop them at 7pm on the PRW.

Man U had a massive police escort also, yet they still managed to battle with bears along the road.

Thirdly, no one will remember the 40 on 40 that you mention (whilst its good to hear). Everyone will remember man utd comning to Ibrox and taking it easily.

That was in the Daily Record, wasn't it?

Turn to page 5 or whatever and you see a huge picture of the Gers fans fighting with police in Manchester :rolleyes:

Ffs, could they not just have put a Man U fans related picture? It's the little things in life.. :dry:

The meet wasn’t at the subway. As there was no meet arranged. Our lot could not move all day. The big hitters had the cops on their tail from the second they stepped out the door that morning.

The underground was last chance saloon. When you mention the row late at night, maybe the normal scarfers don;t remember it because the first time they knew about it was when i first mentioned it a few weeks ago. But in the circle we move in it is NOT forgotten about.

We are a subculture of Rangers fan. While each and every one of us love the Rangers, we don’t do what we do for the normal good Rangers fan, we do it in the environment that we are involved in.

:lol: this will just attract the other casuals like the headhunters to come up and kick fuck out of them

Do you think Chelsea need to come to Glasgow to meet the Mancs mate? They cross their path many times a season down south
