Man charged over 'threatening' Aberdeen v Rangers match behaviour

A man has been charged with behaving in a threatening and abusive manner during the Aberdeen versus Rangers match last month.

Police Scotland said the 45-year-old from Lanarkshire had been charged after the game at Pittodrie on Sunday 25 September.

He is expected to appear in court at a later date.

Aberdeen won the game 2-1, following a late free-kick scored by James Maddison.

Det Insp Stuart McAdam said: "Retrospective enquiries continue to be carried out into a number of incidents that took place during the game.

"I would appeal to anyone with any information that could assist to contact police."
