Rangers Fans Leave Linesman Bleeding As Missile Is Thrown From Crowd

Rangers Fans Leave Linesman Bleeding As Missile Is Thrown From Crowd

Taking on Livingston in the Scottish Premiership this afternoon, a selection of the travelling Rangers fans have reportedly injured a linesman after he gave a decision they disagreed with.

While a win for Steven Gerrard's side would have lifted them above Celtic into 2nd place, Rangers recorded a somewhat surprising 1-0 defeat at the Tony Macaroni Arena.

Sitting eight points off Hearts in 6th place after seven games, Gerrard's side will face the league leaders in a hotly-contested clash next Sunday.

However disappointing the defeat, attention will unfortunately focus on a linesman who was left bleeding after being hit with a missile thrown from someone in the crowd among the selection of Rangers fans present.

Footage from today's game shows an individual in the crowd appear to throw something at the linesman Calum Spence as he walks up the sideline.

A disheartening sight, the linesman nevertheless managed to laugh the incident off and continued on in his role for the duration of the match.
