TAYSIDE Police have confirmed they are investigating an incident of flares and smoke bombs being thrown on to the Gayfield pitch during Sunday’s cup tie against Glasgow Rangers.

As the Arbroath and Rangers teams were led out of the tunnel, what appeared to be a smoke bomb was thrown on to the playing surface from the end that was housing the away support.

In addition a flare was also lit in the Rangers end.

Police say that they are reviewing CCTV footage of the game and that their enquiries are continuing.
