This is definitely the most bizarre story to come out last night’s Champions League action.


In the past, we’ve seen pictures of football fans attacking police horses, like the Newcastle United fan who punched one in the face years ago.

However, last night before Celtic’s Champions League tie with Manchester City at the Etihad stadium, a Celtic fan chose to throw a burger at a police horse and as a result, was arrested and fined £90.

According to the Greater Manchester Police, the incident was one of 14 arrests made in connection with the game and there were also reports of fans setting off fireworks on the Metrolink, Manchester’s tram network.

Having said that, Superintendent Craig Thompson did state after the game that it passed “largely without incident”.

The match at ended 1-1, seeing Manchester City progress to the knock-out stages of the competition and Celtic go out.
