Club condemns ‘unacceptable’ behaviour  during Dundee vs. Rangers clash

The match between Dundee and Rangers was delayed after a huge pyro display.

The leaders of Dundee have denounced “unacceptable actions” that occurred in the stands last night during the Rangers game.

Shortly after the game began at Dens Park, a massive fireworks show near the Rangers end forced the suspension of play.

After the fireworks went off, smoke alarms went off and players from both teams were told to get off the field.

The SPFL is criticizing the scenes as well as conducting retroactive examinations into the matter by Police Scotland. The match saw no arrests made.

In response to the actions in the stands during the Scottish Premiership match, Dundee has now stated that an inquiry is in progress.

Club executives denounced “flares, offensive banners and singing of sectarian songs” as problems that are prevalent in Scottish football in a strongly worded statement.

According to a club statement: “Dundee Football Club is looking into and collaborating with the appropriate authorities following a number of inappropriate conduct in the stands during last night’s Rangers game at The Scot Foam Stadium at Dens Park.

“Spills, insulting flags, and sectarian song singing persist in our game of Scottish football, even with the SFA and all SPFL clubs practicing vigorously at Hampden.

We are unable to comment on the matter at this time because we are collaborating with the authorities. The club will provide more comments after the current investigation is completed.”

According to Superintendent Iain Wales, “our priority is the safety of the public and officers.” The game was halted due to several pyrotechnics, such as smoke bombs and flares that were set off in the stands. The players left the field and came back shortly after.

“Bringing pyrotechnics into a football stadium is not only against the law, but also quite risky. The fact that these are still brought to matches in spite of numerous warnings about the risk is extremely disheartening and concerning.

“Fortunately, no injuries were reported; nonetheless, the outcomes may have been far worse. It’s just a matter of time until someone sustains severe injuries.

“Retrospective inquiries are being conducted even though there were no arrests made during the game. We are collaborating closely with both clubs to uncover the culprits since the inquiry is still underway. Should you know anything that could help with our inquiries, please get in touch with 101 and mention reference number 2815 of November 2.

“The extensive use of pyrotechnics at the match at Dens Park is very concerning and unwelcome,” the SPFL said in a statement.

“It is evident that the interruption of the game is deeply unpleasant.

“We will be communicating with Police Scotland regarding the incident while we await the delegate report.”
