Bristol City also said: “Bristol City Football Club are appalled to hear a minority of so-called City supporters have defaced the Memorial Stadium.

“We do not condone this kind of behaviour and it is disappointing to see the good name of the majority of Bristol City supporters being dragged down by such mindless acts of vandalism.

“We will assist Bristol Rovers and the police with any investigation that follows.”
