The two groups are separated by mounted and unmounted police at the scene.

While later in the footage, a bus can be seen almost running into cops and a supporter on the ground.

During the disturbance, the sunroof of a police van was shattered after a missile was launched at it.

Two officers were slightly injured as a result of the damage.

A man has been arrested and charged by cops following the incident and is due to appear in court.

A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “At approximately 2.30pm on Sunday February 27, 2022, police were called to a disturbance at Govan Cross, Glasgow.

“A 23-year-old man has been arrested and charged in connection with the incident. He has been released on a promise to appear at a later date.

“During the disturbances, a police van was damaged after a missile was launched at the vehicle, causing the sunroof to explode.

“A man and a woman suffered minor cuts as a result. Investigations into the incident are ongoing.”

Meanwhile, Rangers suffered a blow in the title race as they were forced to settle for a 2-2 draw with Motherwell.

The result was all the more frustrating for Giovanni van Bronckhorst’s side as they lost a two-goal lead.

And that meant they were unable to capitalize on Celtic’s draw with Hibs yesterday, leaving them three points behind the league leaders.

However, the Rangers manager was furious after the game as he claimed his side would have won if VAR had been used in Scottish football.

Van Bronckhorst said: “We created 30 chances in the game.

“I know it’s been a tough week, but we were playing well and creating chances.

“There was also three minutes of added time, which for me was incredible.

“But again, it is the referees who decide.


“I think in the run-up to Motherwell’s second goal their player was offside.

“We also scored two goals which were even closer with Morelos.

“You couldn’t see it with your eyes, but they had a very sharp eye at those times – but when a player is a yard offside, he couldn’t see it.

“That’s why you need VAR, for those moments, to help the referees.

“With VAR we would have won this game.”
