Police have praised the behaviour of both sets of fans after Saturday's pre-season friendly between Bristol City and Rangers passed off without incident.

More than 3,000 fans travelled down to Bristol to support the Scottish club, many of them choosing to spend the weekend in the city.

    Police have praised the behaviour of both sets of fans


Prior to the match, North Street in Bedminster was a sea of blue shirts as the travelling fans took the chance for some liquid refreshment in the blazing sunshine.

There were only two arrests, but neither were for public order offences.

One was before the game involving a fan with a football banning order and the second was possession of drugs inside the ground.

Afterwards, hundreds of Rangers supporters moved to the Wetherspoons Bar on Bristol's Waterfront to continue their weekend.

Rangers won the match 1-0, meaning they took the Blackthorn Trophy, which was commissioned especially for this match, back to Glasgow.

Rangers in drugs shame

It has been confirmed today by the Avon and Somerset police, than a fan of Rangers was arrested over the weekend for carrying illegal drugs into the match they were playing against Bristol city.

Police also released a statement claiming that they only just about prevented trouble from arrupting inside the Aston gate ground by refusing entre to a known football thug who is currently banned from all football stadiums.

Rangers fans, who have a strong link to the orange order, have also been linked to the recent violence which has broken out in Belfast.

Local Bristol city fan Seamus o'toole claims that he was abused inside the ground for wearing his usual Celtic top. Seamus claims that he was subjected to vile sectarian abuse by a number of Rangers fans at the game. Seamus claimed that he wears his Celtic top everyday around Bristol but has never once been criticized for it. However that all changed when he was laughed at and ridiculed by the travelling bears

Seamus experience was backed up by a member of the FARE Group who was also in attendance at the ground. the outlawed billy boys could clearly be heard coming from the visiting supporters and one outraged Bristol city fan even took to the internet to comment about one particular rangers fan who was heard to shout "I hate Roman Catholics" outside the stadium.

No one ibrox was available for comment but Strathclyde police have promised to look into the incident and expect to make arrests shortly.

Amazing really. Roasting hot, everyone off their tits, the whole songbook given an airing and not one bit of trouble. Infact one of the most positve atmospheres ive ever experienced at a game, botb in the grounfd and the city. There's a few lessons in there for the Scottish authorities. I'm sure they'll choose to ignore them though.
