Alan, Too bad for that City supporter, but it is very obvious, English soccer fan are detested in Europe, remember the ban on English clubs in the 1980s, 5 years if memory serves me right.
And now the England team are on a last warning to behave or they will also be banned from playing in the European Championship.

Glasgow Celtic fans are bringing 7000 fans to Brussels next Tuesday for their Champions League game with Anderlecht, only 2000 of their fans will have tickets for the game, yet the Belgium Police have agreed with the authorities to turn a large Park over to the Celtic supporters who cannot get into the Stadium.
This area will be designated to Celtic fans from noon onwards.

This would seem to be an amazingly generous gesture by the Belgians, but then again the Celtic support have earned the reputation of being sporting in both victory and defeat. Ard Mhacha.
