Ayr United have slammed fans for throwing a flare onto the park during the side's 2-2 draw with Greenock Morton at the weekend.

A projectile was thrown onto the park at Cappielow during the second half of the Scottish Championship match on Saturday.

Following Tomi Adeloye's goal, the flare was thrown onto the pitch and narrowly missed the players celebrating in front of the away support.

In a statement released this morning, Ayr United said: "The Club would like to thank our supporters for coming to Cappielow on Saturday to support the team.

"Unfortunately, the behaviour of a small few fell well short of acceptable conduct.

“Setting off smoke devices may seem like it’s ‘harmless fun’ and ‘adding to the day’ however this is far from the case and in actual fact affects the health of players and other supporters.

"In circumstances where any of our supporters, or individuals who are associated with AUFC, are accused of unacceptable behaviour we will carry out a rigorous investigation to establish the facts of the situation.

"We are very proud of our loyal support and whilst the vast majority share our views we urge everyone to be respectful of all others at all times."
