Airdrieonians have appealed for witnesses after an elderly man and other Cove Rangers fans were attacked following a League 1 match on Saturday.

The club said that they have been left “disgusted” after the “abhorrent attack” outside the Penny Cars Stadium.

Airdire say they are working with the police to help identify those involved and promised to take “maximum action”.

A club statement read: “Several Cove Rangers supporters were attacked after the match on Saturday including an elderly gentleman.

“Airdrieonians FC is working closely with Police Scotland to identify the attackers and maximum action will be taken to help eliminate all forms of unacceptable behaviour at football.  

“We request that any good minded Airdrie supporters who witnessed these abhorrent attacks contact the club with as much information as possible on enquiries@airdriefc.com.”
