Spartak Moscow fans accused of fighting in Glasgow

Six Spartak Moscow fans have appeared in court following clashes with Celtic fans in Glasgow on Wednesday.

The charges range from breach of the peace to resisting arrest and assaulting police officers.

Two of the male Spartak fans were remanded in custody while four others were released on bail on the condition they surrendered their passports.

The men face separate trials at Glasgow Sheriff Court later this month and in January 2013.

Alexey Fedorov, 22, and Alexsey Filatov, 36, admitted breaching the peace on 5 December by fighting with Celtic fans in the Gallowgate area.

Filatov also admitted resisting arrest. The pair will be sentenced in January.

Fedorov will stand trial at Glasgow Sheriff Court in January charged with assaulting a police officer.

It is not known if the incidents took place before or after Spartak Moscow's 2-1 defeat to Celtic at Parkhead.

Charges denied

Four other fans from Russia were also arrested and charged with fighting with Celtic fans.

Evgeny Morozov, 23; Vladamir Chiscyakov, 24; Gorgy Morozov, 28; and Valery Grishko, 29, are accused of breaching the peace in Bain Street on Wednesday.

Mr Grishko and Mr Chiscyakov are accused of assaulting police officers, while Evegeny Morozov is charged with hindering police officers as they were trying to make arrests.

All four denied the charges and are due to stand trial later this month.

They were all released on bail on the condition that they surrendered their passports.
