Police are investigating reports that a 13-year-old girl was sexually assaulted during the midweek Premiership match between Dundee and Rangers.
The alleged incident took place in the Bob Shankly stand at Dens Park, which houses travelling supporters.
Wednesday’s match was suspended for 18 minutes after Rangers fans let off a large number of flares that triggered fire alarms under the stand.
A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “We are carrying out enquiries following an allegation of sexual assault involving a 13-year-old girl, which happened at Dens Park in Dundee on Wednesday, 1 November, 2023.”
Officials from Dundee FC said they were supporting police in their investigation.
A spokesperson said: “Dundee Football Club can confirm we are aware of an incident which took place in the Bob Shankly stand during Wednesday’s match against Rangers.
“The club are fully supporting the police investigation and the club’s child welfare and protection officer is supporting the situation.
“As this is an ongoing police investigation the club will be making no further comment.”
