Abstract

Paper explores the policing of 'ultras' fans in Scotland, focusing on the 'Green Brigade' group at Celtic. It raises issues about the classed nature of the policing of football fans and calls into question the role of the Scottish Government and Scottish State more generally in the policing of working class football fans.
