A spokeswoman said: "We have six people under arrest, five of them for public disturbance."

The spokeswoman added: "One person has been arrested for drugs offences. He was coming by train from Castillon to Valencia with other supporters, who were causing trouble on the train.

"When officers arrived, they found this man with cocaine and crystal meth.

"I expect they will be going before a judge today. I don't know if they will be sent to prison."

Speaking to STV, Club security chief Ronnie Hawthorn said: "The message from the club is that only those with tickets should try to approach the stadium.

"If you have got a ticket, great. Enjoy what should be a fabulous experience. But if you don't have a ticket, watch it in a bar instead.

"It is a common-sense approach, one that Valencia and the Foreign Office have issued as well."
