POLICE have released images of 16 more suspects they want to trace in connection with the disorder and violence at the end of the 2016 Scottish Cup final.

The match at Hampden Park on May 21 was disrupted when fans invaded the pitch after Hibernian's 3-2 win over Rangers, which was the Edinburgh side's first Scottish Cup win in more than a century.

Hibernian supporters flooded the pitch after their side's dramatic last-minute win, with Rangers fans also making it past stewards and onto the turf before mounted officers restored order.

Police have so far arrested 130 people in connection with the incident and have now released photos of the 16 supporters they want to identify.

The violence on the day attracted condemnation from senior figures in the worlds of football and politics.

Gordon Smith, a former chief executive of the Scottish Football Association, said: "It is sad because this is going around the world – the world has seen this and it is a bad reflection on Scottish football and I think possibly there will be rules reset for future games.

"They [the SFA] will definitely be looking at this and bringing in some measures that would try and avoid this happening again."

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said at the time: “Violence has no place in football either on the pitch or off the pitch.”

In the days after the final, Scottish Police Federation general secretary Calum Steele praised the police response:

"The speed and the skill, the agility and indeed the brilliance with which the police officers from the police service of Scotland brought events under control is something that should be praised to the highest heavens."

He added: “Had there been hundreds or many, many more hundreds of police officers on the track before the final whistle in a sea of yellow jackets and possibly even shields, I suspect today's discussions would have been about the very heavy-handed approach that the police had taken in what was otherwise a very enjoyable football match."
