Jack Ross has been left at a loss as to why bottles and missiles are being thrown at games as controversy marred Hibs’ game with Rangers.

On the football side of things, Ross watched on as his side fell to a 3-0 defeat to Rangers. Goals from Ryan Kent, Joe Aribo and Jermain Defoe sealed a comfortable Gers win.

With Ross County losing to Livingston, it means that Hibs will stay in the top six over Christmas. During their defeat with Rangers though, controversy arose from the stands.

A vodka bottle amongst other things were launched at Rangers player Borna Barisic. It’s a situation that has left Ross completely shocked as he try’s to wrap his head around why someone would do something so cowardly.


He said: “The one thing I would say, and I’m answering this as a human being rather than a football manager, is that I can’t quite get my head around why anyone would make the decision to throw a glass bottle at another human being.

“I just don’t get it. And I don’t understand it. There are a couple of different aspects to that. There are people who argue that behaviour on the pitch or around the pitch affect that.

“That’s garbage, an excuse. Someone who does that deserves the consequences that come with it. Because to throw the bottle is a ridiculous decision.”
