EMERGENCY departments in Glasgow hospitals were placed on "standby" to deal with injuries following Rangers fans' celebrations on Saturday.

More than 15,000 supporters attended at George Square.

But when "alcohol kicked in" things began to turn violent, with fans "fighting with each other" and launching missiles at police. 

Cops blasted the "ugly scenes" as they revealed five officers were left injured.

It is believed a "major incident" had been called after nurses and doctors revealed the news on Twitter.

Glasgow Times:

We previously reported that a man, who was missing half his hand, was taken to hospital after a firework he was holding blew up.

Yesterday, we revealed that a police officer shared images of gruesome injuries sustained by cops who were attacked by Rangers fans. 

Calum Steele, the general secretary of the Scottish Police Federation, posted the shocking pictures on Twitter.

The images show two officer's who needed hospital treatment. One shows a bloodied mouth, which had to be stitched up, and another shows a cop who's arm was in a cast.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon condemned the "disgraceful scenes", adding: "To say I'm utterly disgusted by the Rangers fans who rampaged through the city would be an understatement."
