Football riots in Glasgow


August 22, 1925
Riotous scenes took place on Saturday at two Glasgow football matches. Thousands of persons tried to obtain admission to a Clydebank match through the boys’ entrance, and the police drew batons and fought the crowd, many of whom, scaling walls and ruining private gardens, got into the park without payment.

At a Barrhead match a crowd severely kicked and mauled the referee.
