“People will say, ‘oh but it was just a plastic bottle’, it doesn’t matter. That bottle was thrown from a distance and if it hits him in the eye that could cause serious damage.

“It’s got to be dealt with severely and they should set an example.

“For me with Arsenal, if they put more cameras and showed that there’s more cameras in the ground on the fans, that might be a bigger deterrent.”
