THIRTEEN suspected football hooligans appeared in court yesterday accused of taking part in rioting after a European cup final.

All the suspects – 11 adults and two juveniles – filed into the courtroom at Manchester Magistrates’ Court, with several having to stand at the back of the court with the dock already full.

All are charged with violent disorder after Rangers’ Uefa Cup Final defeat in Manchester in May last year.
