Dozens of Celtic supporters have been attacked in Rome when a shuttle bus broke down as it transported them from the Stadio Olimpico.

Hoops fans said they were ‘ambushed’ as they had to walk back into the city following Celtic’s 2-1 victory over Lazio.

It comes after two Celtic fans were stabbed by masked attackers outside a pub in Rome the night before the match.

Fans took to social media to describe how they were attacked as they returned from the stadium on Thursday evening.

Michael McFarlane tweeted a video of fans walking in the dark and wrote: “Our shuttle bus broke down 1km from the stadium. Driver chucked us out, meaning we had to walk through the Lazio neighbourhood.

“After this video, about 20 Lazio fans sprinted from the dark and ambushed the group at the river. Got away safe, not sure about others.”

Rab Robertson wrote: “Fair squad of us ambushed, weans the lot, completely co-ordinated, hopefully all safe”, while Thomas Lunday tweeted: “Not enough buses to take everyone back to the city, so rest of the fans had to walk a couple miles further on that’s when they where ambushed by casuals.”
