Hibernian have handed police CCTV footage of four men throwing missiles during last Friday night's defeat by Rangers.

A glass bottle landed near grounded Rangers Borna Barisic as he lay injured during his team's 3-0 victory at Easter Road.

A club statement read: "Hibernian FC today confirmed that it is passing over CCTV material to Police Scotland investigating several incidents of missiles being thrown at the Hibernian v Rangers match at Easter Road on December 20.

"We will continue to review the footage, and we expect to identify any others involved.

"We invested in enhanced CCTV cameras to tackle precisely this kind of behaviour, and those who misbehave should know we will leave no stone unturned to identify them and bring them to book."

Rangers boss Steven Gerrard fears the trouble on the terraces will only get worse unless a "severe" example is made of the missile throwers.

"They need to be punished and punished heavily so it stops other people trying to do it in the future.

"It's a crazy decision to throw a bottle onto a football pitch. The damage you could do is unthinkable."
