Child hit with bottle during Aberdeen v Rangers match
The 12-year-old was struck with a glass bottle believed to have been thrown from the away end.
Police are appealing for witnesses after a young football fan was struck with a glass bottle during Aberdeen's match against Rangers on Sunday.
The 12-year-old boy was in the home end of Pittodrie stadium when he was hit by the bottle which is believed to have been thrown from the area housing visiting Rangers fans.
It was thrown during the Premiership opener that ended in a 1-1 draw thanks to a late Aberdeen equaliser.
The incident took place at around 3pm in the moments after the home side's late equaliser.
A police spokeswoman confirmed the incident and said that enquires are ongoing to establish the full circumstances and trace those responsible.
Officers say that no serious injuries were reported as a result.
Rangers opened the scoring through a first half penalty after going down to ten men early in Steven Gerrard's first league game in charge.
But Aberdeen earned a point in the fourth minute of injury time after a dramatic ending.
