Police have praised the behaviour of supporters attending the Ramsdens Cup final in Edinburgh.

Raith Rovers beat Rangers 1-0 in the match, which was played at Easter Road stadium on Sunday.

Police Scotland said most of the 20,000 supporters had co-operated with officers and had a "great day out".

A total of 21 people were detained - 11 of them for disorder before the match, and the remainder for minor offences inside and around the stadium.

Ch Supt Mark William said: "Today's policing operation was designed to keep people safe, get fans to and from the stadium with a minimum of disruption, and ensure that law-abiding fans enjoyed the cup final.

"I am delighted to say that the vast majority of supporters co-operated with officers and I would like to thank them for their support."
