Celtic fans attacked in Amsterdam by Ajax hooligans (Video)

Celtic and Ajax Amsterdam are set to square off in the Netherlands in UEFA Champions League group play on Wednesday. Soccer fans travel well, and Celtic fans made the trip to Amsterdam for the Champions League match. As if you need a reason to go to Amsterdam.

Some Celtic fans were drinking at a Amsterdam pub, minding their own business, when a group of people ran up and shouted “Amsterdam Hooligans.” They then can be seen trying to bang on the windows in an attempt to break them, and running in through the front door. One guy sitting near the window can be seen getting hit.

Eventually, the attackers fled and staff barricaded the door. In the video you can see only a handful of people chasing after them and running them off. Given by how hard it was for them to break the window, which they never did, I’m not surprised.
