Sevco face a probe from UEFA after one angry fan strolled out of the Sandy Jardine Stand to confront a linesman involved in the sending off of Danny Candeias against Villarreal.

It was a mirror image of the attack on Scott Brown from April 2017 that was ignored by the SFA, SPFL and Police Scotland.

UEFA are unlikely to be as relaxed about the incident, there will be no allowances because the linesman ‘brought it on himself’ or other excuses.

The tribute act will be in the focus of UEFA after Police Scotland made a case to restrict the number of visiting fans allowed to Ibrox due to safety fears.

Candeias was given his second yellow card within ten minutes when he joined in a tag team assault on a Villarreal player alongside James Tavernier and Alfredo Morelos.

During and after the match the Anti-Catholic anthem The Billy Boys could clearly be heard being sung by thousands of fans, in 2006 UEFA banned that ‘song’ after incidents between the old club and Villarreal.

Sevco are expected to take over 10,000 fans to their final group match away to Rapid Vienna, anything less than a win could make it a difficult couple of days for the Austriam security services.
