A RANGERS fan is accused of trying to set alight the flag of a Welsh team to allegedly provoke opposition fans.

Andrew Watt, 30, is said to have conducted himself in a disorderly manner at Ibrox Stadium on November 16 2019.

The Rangers Colts team were hosting the Wrexham in the Tunnocks Caramel Wafer Challenge Cup at the time.

Prosecutors claim Watt was in possession of an opposition flag.

It is stated he made attempts to ignite the flag and wave it in a provocative manner at the Wrexham fans.

Watt is then alleged to have resisted, obstructed or hindered a police officer after being arrested and taken into custody.

The charge claims Watt broke free from PC John Doherty’s grasp, struggled with him and made off.

Co-accused Lloyd Cross, 29, William Cross, 59, and Christopher Stewart, 25, face a charge of behaving in a threatening or abusive manner at Ibrox.

It is claimed the trio behaved aggressively towards police officers and pushed them as well as other members of the public.

The men also face allegations that they shouted and swore, stood on seats, and attempted to strike PC Stephen Begg on the body.

Lloyd Cross faces a further charge of assaulting PC Lukas Erhardt by seizing his body and armour before pushing him to the ground.

He is said to have been on bail for a separate matter at the time.

A hearing has been set for next month before a June trial at Glasgow Sheriff Court.

Lloyd Cross, of the city’s Kings Park, William Cross, of Croftfoot, Stewart, of Pollok, and Watt, of Rutherglen, South Lanarkshire, remain on bail meantime.
