Flare being extinguished last month at Falkirk

The device was thrown on to the pitch at the end of the game last month, which Rangers won 2-0, causing damage to the playing surface.

It melted areas of the plastic woven surface at The Falkirk Stadium, leaving a scar nearly two feet long, with other damage caused near where the flare landed.

Falkirk had spent around £500,000 installing the new state-of-the-art pitch this summer.

A statement from Rangers read: "Rangers Football Club has today issued an indefinite ban to a 16-year-old female who has been charged for her unacceptable behaviour at the recent Scottish Cup tie at Falkirk.

"She will be banned from attending all home and away games following the flare incident at the match.

"The club will continue to assist Police Scotland with their enquiries as they attempt to identify others who may have been involved."

resumably, you wanted to keep the version of Downing that was never seen at Anfield. The one that another manager has managed to re-create. The one you passed over.
