Bizarre Scenes at New Douglas Park as Two St Johnstone Players Start Fighting

St Johnstone are down to nine men against Hamilton after a fight broke out between Danny Swanson and Richard Foster.

The Scottish Premiership clash at New Douglas Park was interrupted just before half-time when the pair of Saints players clashed.

And fans at the game added their view of the situation:

And it’s just another bizarre Scottish football story in a week which has been dominated by the handbags at Easter Road at the end of Hibs’ draw with Morton.

The New Douglas Park tannoy worker obviously thought the stadium needed a laugh after the shock incident:
