Chelsea's game against Celtic yesterday gave London's Metropolitan Police Force a major headache as they struggled to contain disturbances that were centred around the Fulham area of West London. Groups of Celtic fans were 'held' in pubs at Kings Cross as Police tried to curb the expected trouble.

 

The Met had to draft in extra cover and seconded a section of officers from British Transport Police. As soon as they were in position outside Fulham Broadway underground station, the officers who had previously been patrolling the area were then sent off to deal with incidents in the North End Rd.

 

An estimated 1000 Chelsea supporters were said to be involved in running battles and skirmishes with Celtic fans around Fulham Broadway as violence flared at or close to Bootsy Brogan's, The Slug And Lettuce and The Jolly Malster public houses.

 

The Chelsea supporters were joined by others from Millwall, Glasgow Rangers, Airdrie Utd and Falkirk who were there to take part in trouble on a scale that had not been seen around Chelsea for many years.

 

Police held a large contingent of Celtic supporters at Bootsy Brogan's until after the game had kicked-off and around 500 were taken under heavy police escort into the Matthew Harding Stand.

 

However, the Police decided to take them the long way, preferring to use The Shed entrance to the stadium rather than the Britannia Gate. This meant that they didn't actually get into the ground until moments before the half-time whistle sounded.

 

Following the game, the Fulham Rd was shut until 11.30 pm until Police were able to clear away the Chelsea supporters who had gathered to try to attack the Celtic fans. Under Police guidance, the visitors were escorted back to Fulham Broadway underground station.

 

Although the Police had hoped to get the Celtic fans away quietly, they were kept busy as Chelsea supporters boarded trains at Parsons Green to try to get to the Hoops via the underground system, thereby evading the Police cordons that had blocked off the back roads leading to the Fulham Rd.

 

Police were then kept busy until the small hours of the morning dealing with sporadic incidents in West and Central London as the Celtic fans dispersed.

 

Sources indicate that, as part of the agreement to get Celtic here last night, Chelsea will be playing a return fixture at Parkhead in a warm-up friendly before the start of the 07/08 season.

Rangers and Chelsea have strong ties between the fans, just like a lot of Man U fans support Celtic.

Yup, I know a few Celtic fans who despise Chelsea, reckon if they play in the capital they always get jumped by them. There is also a sizable Chelsea contingent turn up for Old Firm games to side with Rangers and cause bother. Don't know the exact origins behind it like.
