Both sets of supporters are then captured chasing each other down Somerville Drive in the direction of Brownlie Street. Another clip shows police eventually separating fans, who were mainly dressed in black.

It remains unclear if there were any major injuries as a result of the incident, or if any arrests have been made.

The Viaplay Cup Final between Rangers and Celtic kicks off at 3pm.
