ANN BUDGE insists questions have to be asked after Hearts fans claimed they were attacked at Ibrox on Friday night.

The Tynecastle chief has launched an investigation into reports of trouble after the Jambos' Championship clash with Rangers was abandoned due to snow and ice on the pitch.

Online comments, videos and pictures allege that there were incidents between the fans of both clubs inside and outside the stadium after the final whistle, with the game called off midway through the first half.

Budge was critical of the conduct of Celtic fans during their visit to Gorgie earlier in the campaign.

And she will seek clarity into the events at Ibrox before deciding whether to take any further action.

She said: "We've had lots of things being checked and double checked. Clearly there are some questions we need to ask.

"Whether it is Hearts fans or any other fans, if you see that sort of thing happening then you need to be asking questions. We have to find out the facts as best we can and take it from there."
