HUNDREDS of Rangers fans are set to descend on Aberdeen ahead of the Ibrox team's clash with the city club.

Police have urged Gers supporters to plan ahead as they attend tomorrow's match, with the city centre, Pittodrie, Aberdeen Beach and Seaton areas will be busier than usual.

Thousands of extra officers will be in the area to keep an eye on fans from both sides, while those tempted by the use of pyrotechnics have warned they will be arrested.

Emergency work is also ongoing at Virginia Street, Market Street and Guild Street in the harbour area of Aberdeen and fans have been asked to avoid the area.

Match Commander Superintendent Richard Craig has warned those planning to watch the game either at Pittodrie stadium, a pub or at home to enjoy the match but to behave responsibly.

He said: “Anyone who becomes involved in disorder or acts of violence will be dealt with robustly.

“It is well-documented that drinking too much alcohol can lead you to become more vulnerable to becoming involved in crime either as a victim or perpetrator. I am urging supporters to behave responsibly and be aware that if you’re drunk you won’t be allowed entry to the stadium and you’ll miss the match.

“Additional officers will be on duty across the North East and within the stadium on Wednesday and they will be supported by specialist resources. Our officers are extremely experienced in policing football matches and will be able to offer you assistance should you need it.

“We are here to ensure the safety and security of all supporters attending the game and minimise disruption to the local community.

"Officers would like to remind the public that those entering Pittodrie will be closely monitored for possession of alcohol or pyrotechnics of any kind. It is a condition of entry to the ground that fans allow themselves to be searched and those who refuse will be turned away by the club."

“We will be implementing policing operations throughout the evening, including spot checks on buses and coaches travelling to the game.

Superintendent Craig added: “Pyrotechnics are extremely dangerous and endanger the safety of those around you as well as your own safety. We will take action, you will be arrested.

“The match is undoubtedly a big event and we are looking forward to it. Most importantly enjoy the football and stay safe.”
