Shamrock Rovers have said they will issue 'indefinite bans' to two individuals who were arrested during last night's SSE Airtricity League Premier Division game against Waterford FC after fireworks were set off from the away section at the RSC.

After 15 minutes of last night's Premier Division match, fireworks exploded both over the pitch and in the away supporter's section.

One man was injured in the incident and was taken to Waterford Regional Hospital to receive treatment for his injuries which are not life threatening.

Two arrests were made at the scene, a 23-year old man and an 18-year old man were taken to Waterford Garda Station and have since been released. Gardaí have said that investigations are ongoing.

In a statement released this morning, Shamrock Rovers said they "unequivocally condemn" the action of the "so-called supporters" and have promised to co-operate fully with the Garda investigation.

The club added that they would issuing indefinite bans from Tallaght Stadium to the people involved.

"Shamrock Rovers F.C. unequivocally condemns the actions of two 'so called' supporters whose actions caused disruption at last night’s league game at the RSC in Waterford," the statement read.

"The two individuals were arrested by Gardaí at the scene and taken from the ground. The club will cooperate fully with the Gardaí on any follow-up matters and will also be issuing indefinite bans from attending Tallaght Stadium to the people concerned.

"It is regrettable that the actions of two individuals caused reputational damage to the club and was not reflective of the atmosphere and support from the large away crowd of over 350 Hoops fans who supported the team throughout, enjoying a 3-1 away win."

It remains to be seen whether the club, who sealed back-to-back Premier Division titles last week, will face disciplinary action from the league.

Waterford had taken an early lead through through John Martin but shortly afterwards fireworks exploded both over the pitch and in the away supporter's section.

Players from both sides ducked to take cover as the fireworks detonated above the pitch and sparks rained down.

Waterford's Anthony Wordsworth seemed to be among most affected and twice appeared to have been hit by falling sparks.

Referee Rob Hennessy was left with little option but to halt the game and remove the players from the pitch.

Waterford FC tweeted: "Players being taken off the pitch by referee Rob Hennessy - visiting supporters setting off fireworks on the pitch."

The match resumed almost ten minutes later and Shamrock Rovers eventually ran out 3-1 winners.
