Police Scotland can confirm that a 21-year-old man from the Glasgow area has been charged in relation to an alleged incident of culpable and reckless conduct reported at Pittodrie Football Stadium at the Aberdeen FC v Rangers FC game on Sunday March 3, 2019.

He is due to appear at Aberdeen Sheriff Court later today (Wednesday March 27).

Thank you to those who assisted with and shared our appeal earlier this week – your information was invaluable.

He is described as being aged in his 20’s and wearing a black and grey jacket. He is described as having very short fair-coloured hair and was wearing a Rangers scarf.

PC Tom Bashforth said

I would appeal to anyone who witnessed this incident or who recognises the man pictured to contact police via 101 quoting reference number CF0053110319.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Police Scotland on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 if you wish to remain anonymous.
