Rangers won the Scottish Premiership title earlier this month, following Celtic’s goalless draw with Dundee United.

However, Cllr John O’Brien said that while the majority of Rangers fans had been celebrating, some had spraypainted bus shelters and street signs around Levenmouth with the ‘55’ tag – a reference to how many titles the club has won.

He said: “No need for this vandalising in our streets. We all know Rangers done well – you don’t have to write it all over bus shelters.”He added: “It’s us, the tax payer, who pays for the clean up.”

As well as spraypainting signs and bus shelters, street curbs had also been painted, blue, red and white – the club colours. Flags were also left hanging from street lights.

Rangers played Old Firm rivals Celtic at the weekend, with the game ending 1-1.
