A police investigation is underway following reports that an elderly woman was injured following Sunday’s League Cup semi-final clash at Murrayfield.

The 70-year-old woman was apparently taken to A&E after she was hit on the face by a bottle of Budweiser that was thrown towards a Celtic supporters’ bus as it left the Sainsbury’s car park on Westfield Road.

The victim’s daughter took to social media to blast those, believed to be Hearts fans, responsible.

She said: “To the so called Hearts fan that thought it was a good idea to throw a full bottle of bud at a bus of Celtic fans today outside Sainsbury’s car park, I am now sitting in A&E with my 70 year old mum as that bottle hit her on the side of the face.”

A Police Scotland spokesman said: “Police in Edinburgh are aware of information on social media relating to an assault of a woman in the Westfield Road area on Sunday.

“Officers are conducting relevant enquiries to establish the full circumstances surrounding the incident.”
