Yesterday, I wrote of my immense frustration upon hearing that plans to show United’s European Cup final on the big screens had been cancelled, following the scenes of violence involving Rangers fans. The Scottish fans travelled to Manchester to watch their UEFA Cup Final which was being held at the Council House. After a technical hitch with the screen in Piccadilly Gardens, the Rangers fans kicked off.
“Manchester City Council, Trafford Council and Manchester United are working with Greater Manchester Police to identify suitable opportunities, given the necessary logistical demands to ensure security and safety, to appropriately celebrate United’s achievements this season. There will not be a parade immediately following the Uefa final next week but details are being discussed to organise an event which may take place during the summer.”
This is a fucking disgrace.
