Police dogs have been given tetanus jabs ahead of tonights Champions League game between Manchester United and Glasgow Rangers in case they bite or come into contact with any Rangers fans. Last time they played each other in 2008, many dogs were taken ill with all sorts of ailments after biting the arms and legs of innocent drunken Scottish troublemakers.
Dog Risks Health By Biting Rangers Fan
Two dogs were later breathalysed and found to be three times over the legal limit after chewing on the legs of Rangers fans. All the dogs eventually recovered after their ordeal.
The dogs may be muzzled for their own safety and police may resort to belting fans with truncheons instead. "It's old-fashioned policing and what we all joined for and there's less of a risk of the dogs contracting anything from unpleasant Scotsmen," said a police spokesman.
