Video: Linfield v Celtic - Moment blues fan invades pitch before riot squad are called

Linfield are facing serious punishment from European football chiefs, including heavy fines and a possible ban, after their fans attacked Celtic players with bottles and coins as their tinderbox UEFA Champions League qualifier at Windsor Park erupted into violence.

Police in full riot gear and backed up by dogs rushed onto the pitch after the final whistle as home supporters threw missiles at stewards and PSNI officers standing between them and several hundred Celtic supporters who'd managed to get tickets for the match despite their club's refusal to take up their official allocation.
