Derek Riordan Scores Penalty, Then Gets Chased By Fan – Hibs vs. Hearts: Video
Yesterday, Hibernian beat Hearts 1-0 in a Scottish Premier League match. The lone goal was by Derek Riordan as a result of a penalty in the 79th minute.
While the penalty itself was a bit controversial, it was what happened after the kick that had Hearts fans incensed and Derek Riordan fleeing for help. Instead of celebrating with his own fans, Riordan ran over to opposing fans, taunting them by putting his finger to his lips to shush them.
Several Hearts fans then invaded the pitch, one of whom actually made it close enough to Riordan that he was able to take a swing at him.
The invading fans were eventually escorted from the field & the match resumed. Just another day in the life of Scottish soccer.
