Shocking video captured the moment a passerby was hit by a golf ball thrown by rioting footie fans.

Mark MacNicol, from Glasgow, was caught up in the brawl of more than 70 football fans on Sunday evening after meeting friends for dinner in the city centre.

The violent street fight erupted after the Rangers and Wigan match at Ibrox Stadium and saw fans throw bottles as they made their way to Glasgow Central Station.

Mark filmed part of the riot, and as the clip comes to an end – a golf ball can be seen bouncing off the ground and heading directly towards him.

Earlier this year a golfer died after a golf ball hit him in the head in a freak accident.

The screenwriter posted the footage to his Facebook page with the caption: ‘Scumbags. Nothing to do with decent Rangers or Wigan fans.

‘Lives so uneventful they get their kicks scaring innocent people. I filmed up until I got hit with a golf ball, on the shoulder, I’m fine. Video going to Police Scotland.’

The footage has already been viewed 72,000 times since it was posted on Sunday evening.

The footage begins on Hope Street, which runs down the side of Glasgow Central Station, and football fans can be seen throwing bottles and other objects at each other.

The rammy causes taxis to be stranded in the street, and locals can be seen watching in horror as the violence unfolds in front of them.

Two police officers can be seen running straight into the middle of the fight as the clip continues, and wrestling with the out of control hooligans.

The officers manage to calm things down, slightly, and direct fans down to Argyle Street.

However, as they do so, Mark stands and films the fans moving away – while traffic starts moving again.

Within seconds it then becomes clear that a small white golf ball has been thrown by someone from the corner of the street – from across the road.

The ball flies high into the air and drops down to the road before bouncing back up and heading straight for Mark.

The golf ball smacked him in the shoulder, but luckily didn’t cause any injuries.

Speaking today, Mark said: ‘I had just met some friends for food round the corner.

‘I was crossing the road at Hope Street and I saw a group of Wigan hooligans leave wetherspoon, I wouldn’t use the word fan, and meeting rangers hooligans for what looked to me like a pre-arranged fight.

‘Although, the middle of Glasgow city centre seems to me like last place you’d arrange if you didn’t want to be interrupted by police.

‘The golf ball missed my face and head thankfully. It only got me on the shoulder. I’m fine.’

On social media, Andrew Dunn wrote: ‘Shocking. Scumbags.’

Iain Nairn added: ‘Our support has a large undesirable element. We need to continue to challenge these people and reclaim the club for the decent fans.’

Janis Nicol commented: ‘The disgusting minority does it yet again.’

John Hyland said simply: ‘Disgrace.’

In February this year, a golfer died when a golf ball hit him in the temple.

Jaden Goldfinch-Booker was hit on the head in the freak accident at the Frankton Golf Course, Queenstown, New Zealand.

The 27-year-old was rushed to hospital and placed in an induced coma, but died five days later despite undergoing surgery.
