Scottish Football: Rangers give teenage girl indefinite ban after flare incident

eNewsletter

Rangers have banned a teenage female fan in the wake of a flare-throwing incident during their Scottish Cup tie at Falkirk.

The device was thrown on to the pitch at the end of the game last month, which Rangers won 2-0, causing damage to the playing surface.

Falkirk's pitch is made of plastic, having been installed in the summer, with the flare melting areas of the plastic woven surface at The Falkirk Stadium, leaving a scar nearly two feet long, with other damage caused near where the flare landed.

A statement from Rangers read: "Rangers Football Club has today issued an indefinite ban to a 16-year-old female who has been charged for her unacceptable behaviour at the recent Scottish Cup tie at Falkirk."

"She will be banned from attending all home and away games following the flare incident at the match."

"The club will continue to assist Police Scotland with their enquiries as they attempt to identify others who may have been involved."

Rangers' rivals Celtic were also involved in a match that same weekend which was interrupted by a flare.
