Football madness

I can only describe the behaviour of the so-called fans at the Glasgow Rangers football match in Manchester last night as despicable. Regardless of why or how it started it should never be permitted for narrow minded idiots to pick up whatever items they find at hand and throw them as projectiles at the authorities who are there to protect the safety of those present and to ensure that a great sporting event runs successfully. Although it would’ve been good to see Rangers beat Zenit St Petersburg it would’ve been even better if the minority of people involved in the scuffles had not spoiled it for the rest of us who live in this country by making a debacle of the event.
It is not acceptable for this type of mindless violence to spill out onto the streets that belong to and are paid for via the tax’s we pay.
This is yet another day that I cannot say I am proud to be British.
