Sickening footage shows football fans brawl in violent Dundee street fight as men left injured


Football thugs have been filmed brawling on the streets of Dundee on Saturday night.

Police have launched a major probe into the shocking scenes after a teen suffered a serious head injury in the pitched battle.

The 17-year-old was rushed to Ninewells Hospital for emergency treatment following the incident that happened at 7.20pm on Saturday.

The footage shows two groups of men fighting on a pavement and in the road close to the Hilltown’s junction with Alexander Street.

It is not known what started the flare-up but one fan can clearly be seen lying face down in the road after being struck.

Two clips from the fight appeared on the Scotland REbreak news Facebook page.

It is unclear which fans were involved in the shocking scenes. Dundee FC played Aberdeen in the city earlier in the day. The match ended in a 2-2 draw. Dundee United were away to Hibs in Edinburgh.

At the start of the footage, taken from a window of a nearby flat, a bus and number of cars are forced to stop as the fight spills onto the road.

About 30 fans were involved in the melee that moves from the pavement onto waste ground nearby.
