A further six arrests have been made following disorder at the Scottish League Cup final in February.

In total, sixteen people have been arrested in relation to the incident which occurred outside Hampden Stadium in Glasgow on the morning of Sunday, February 26.

Three men aged 18, 20 and 23 have been released pending further enquiries while three, aged 24, 26 and 28, were charged and released on undertakings.

They are due to appear at Glasgow Sheriff Court at a later date.

Ten men were previously arrested in relation to the incident earlier this week.

In a statement, the police force said: “Police Scotland supports the event organisers, being the clubs and the football authorities, to create a safe environment for people to attend and enjoy football matches.

“These arrests show that such violence and disorder has no place in football and our enquiries continue in order to identify those responsible for the disorder inside and outside of Hampden at this fixture.

“We are committed to working with our partners to maximise the safety of all persons attending football fixtures.”

A spokesperson for the Scottish Professional Football League said: “We have been working closely with Police Scotland and the Scottish FA to investigate and address the unacceptable behaviour of a small minority of supporters at the recent Viaplay Cup Final.

“We are encouraged by the progress which has already been made and look forward to more of the individuals involved being identified in the near future.”
