First Minister Humza Yousaf MSP announced his opposition to draconian UK Government proposals that would demonise travelling football fans across Scotland.

The FM echoed a joint statement issued on behalf of the Scottish FA, Scottish Professional Football League, and Scottish Women’s Premier League which said that the proposals would “interfere unnecessarily in people’s lives.”
