The Ibrox team is scheduled to battle rivals Celtic at Hampden Park at 3pm on Saturday.

Yet, as Hoops fans congregated in the Merchant City area this morning, troubling scenes unfolded as supporters in matching blue shirts rushed toward an Irish pub.

Graces on Candleriggs, often a meeting place for Celtic fans on game days, seemed to be the focus of the Rangers supporters before the game.

Groups of fans, donning masks, stormed through the streets, chanting and cursing, as onlookers from the well-liked bar observed. Sirens were also audible as police in uniform pursued them.

Another video shared on social media displayed security staff outside the pub preventing any from entering. It is understood that police quickly handled the situation and there were no injuries.

Police were seen directing the Rangers fans away from Trongate before a Celtic fan march to Hampden. Hoops fans were set to march from the east end of the city to the stadium starting around noon.

This incident follows a video shared on social media last night of Rangers ultras approaching a Celtic pub in Glasgow. The footage, posted on the ‘Casual Ultra Official’ page on X, formerly Twitter, captured several men clad in black heading toward the Tall Cranes Bar on Craigton Road in Govan on Friday evening.

Numerous individuals in the group were initially seen sprinting down the road and then could be heard yelling, as police guarded the pub entrance. Cries of ‘let’s go then’ were audible with some participants energetically hopping up and down before the video concluded.

Police have been on heightened alert throughout Glasgow as the match marks the end of Scotland’s domestic football season.

A Police Scotland spokesperson stated: “A suitable policing strategy has been implemented to ensure public safety and reduce any disturbances to the community.

“We continue to closely collaborate with various partners, including Glasgow City Council and both football clubs.”
