ENJOY the sun, sea and cerveza in San Sebastian but do so responsibly.
That is the only warning from Police Scotland ahead of Thursday’s Europa League third round qualifier between Real Sociedad and Aberdeen FC.
The Red Army will be travelling in numbers again to the Basque country for the first leg tie.
Today, police urged the Dons support to reinforce their excellent reputation in Europe and to be responsible when drinking in the sun.
Temperatures are set to be as high as 27C on Thursday a fair bit warmer than we are used to in the North-east.
“Fans attending the match have been reminded that if they are consuming alcohol to be aware of their limits and that warm weather is expected,” a spokeswoman added.
Superintendent Innes Walker, who is liaising with police in Spain, said: “Police Scotland, as in previous rounds, will be working with Aberdeen Football Club with the aim of ensuring that fixtures are safe and enjoyable for home and travelling fans.
“Officers will be in attendance to support the Spanish Police on Thursday and assist them in policing the fixture.
“Aberdeen fans have an excellent reputation in Europe, but it is incumbent upon me to remind anyone who may become involved in disorder that it is likely that this will be dealt with robustly by the local law enforcement agency.
“The last fixtures both home and away have overall been very successful and enjoyable events for all involved and we want that to continue.
“We do anticipate that inappropriate behaviour will be kept to a minimum and hope that it will be a good experience for all involved.”
