The footage has been widely circulated online and shows groups of the travelling fans engaging in violent confrontation with the outnumbered Gardai on Abbey Street. Footage filmed from a nearby window captures the scenes as a group of travelling fans provoke Gardaí members, pushing and shoving the officers before they tripped one over.

In the background you can hear the rest of the Gent fans cheering on the altercation and chanting various team songs. In the footage you can also see certain individuals trying to ease tensions and calm down the riled-up individuals.

The official Gent Twitter account shared a video of Gent fan marching down O'Connell Street past the GPO earlier in the afternoon.

The Gardai have issued the following statement last night to media:

'Gardai confirmed they attended a public order incident on Abbey Street earlier on Thursday and no arrests were made and the investigations are ongoing.'

The match in Tallaght on Thursday night ended in. 1-1 draw, with Rory Gaffney heading Rovers ahead with just 3 minutes on the clock. Gent equalised in the 74th minute but were unable to steal a win despite Rovers losing a man with 20 minutes to go. The Belgian side were then booed off the pitch by their own fans after failing to capitalise on this opportunity, leaving the fate of their Conference League progress to be decided next week.
