Caley Thistle fans could face bans after “unacceptable” behaviour

Caley Thistle directors are planning to slap banning orders on a small group of fans they say “disgraced” the club at a recent away game.

The club is studying CCTV footage from their Scottish Championship clash with Brechin City on Saturday to identify the culprits who they say behaved in an “unacceptable” way.

The move emerged after new Caley-Thistle chairman Graham Rae issued a strongly-worded statement on Tuesday condemning the actions of the group of supporters.

Caley Jags chairman says small group of fans “disgraced” club

John Robertson’s men ran out 4-0 winners in the league fixture, but Mr Rae said police were forced to remove six “rogue” fans from Glebe Park and that a supporters’ coach was “badly damaged” on the way home.

And yesterday the board of directors issued a fresh statement confirming that they would move to ban any fans found to have been out of order.

They said: “Following the unacceptable conduct of a small group of ‘supporters’ at our Championship League game against Brechin last Saturday, the club can now advise that discussions have taken place with both Brechin City Football Club and Police Scotland, with the view to identifying those supporters whose conduct was unacceptable, including those who were ejected from the Brechin City football ground.

“The evidence secured to date includes both video and still footage taken at the match and written reports received from both Brechin City and Police Scotland.

“The club is currently collating this evidence with the view of issuing banning orders against those whose conduct has proved to be unacceptable.”

“As we have stated in the pasted and reiterate again here, ICTFC will not tolerate unacceptable conduct at Tulloch Caledonian Stadium or away football stadia.

“Unacceptable conduct is conduct which is deemed violent or disorderly. Violent conduct includes any actual, attempted or threatened physical violence against any person or intentional damage to property.”

The team returns to Glebe Park in Brechin tomorrow for their IRN-BRU Cup second round clash against Aberdeen Colts.
