COPS are scouring CCTV footage in the hunt for a group of men following a large scale disturbance on Old Firm day.

Around 3.50pm on Sunday, a large group of men were walking north on Hope Street from Argyle Street when a fight broke out between them and three men, two of whom had come out of the Toby Jug pub.

It comes as football revellers were filmed launching chairs in the pub's windows as families celebrated Mother's Day.

Police investigating the incident believe the disturbance was sparked by an argument between the group and punters who had left the drinking spot on Hope Street.

Detective Sergeant Euan Keil, of Greater Glasgow CID, said: “There appears to have been an exchange of words between a couple of patrons from the Toby Jug pub and a group of men who had been walking north on Hope Street which then resulted in a large scale disturbance with some tables and chairs being thrown about.

“So far we have not had any reports of people being injured during this incident, however, it was the middle of the afternoon and there were lots of people and cars about and we cannot have this type of behaviour happening anywhere never mind in the middle of a busy city centre."
