Moment Rangers fans attack pub after cup final before being chased off by 'Celtic maws' | The Sun

THIS is the moment a mob of Rangers fans attacked a pub before being chased off by a group of "Celtic maws".

The CCTV camera footage shows the group, mostly dressed in all black with hoods and balaclavas on, charging at the Glasgow boozer.

It also shows people throwing traffic cones and pyrotechnics at the PJ Neeson pub on Allison Street in the city's Govanhill around 5:15pm on Sunday.

We previously told how lit flares were thrown into the boozer and a man's shirt caught fire after Sunday's Old Firm League Cup final where Celtic beat Rangers 2-1.

But the newly-emerged security footage shows how a group of women rushed from the under-attack pub to challenge the footie yobs.

One woman – holding what appears to be a pool cue – ran out to confront one of the masked hooligans.

She was filmed kicking at him in the middle of the road as others rushed to get between the pair.

Other women ran from the pub and into the road to fend off the yobs and pulled the first woman back to the pavement.

The footage went viral after being shared on social media, gathering over 3,000 likes.

And the women who ran out to confront the hooligans have been branded "Celtic maws" by social media users.

Fans were quick to react to the clip, with one playing a pun on a classic song by The Clash, joking: "I fought the maws and the maws won."

Police were called to the area after the trouble flared up following the final.

But officers confirmed that the crowds were dispersed and no arrests were made.

P.J Neeson previously declined to comment when approached by the Scottish Sun.

It comes as four people were arrested after the match as cops probe an alleged pre-match 'hooligan brawl'.

Police confirmed they nicked four people for disorder-related offences in response to a number of alleged incidents.

It followed a street battle between hooligans from both sides hours before the final.

The fans were seen in Glasgow’s southside after swarming towards each other at the west and north sides of the ground before breakfast time.

It’s believed cops will crack down hard on the two groups of ‘ultras’ and will use social media videos to help find those involved.

But the brawl has led to a top cup saying footie ultras should be BANNED from getting early access to stadiums to lay out banners.
