Footage has emerged of England fans singing sectarian chants outside an Irish Bar in Marseille.

Police were forced to intervene last night when rival English and French clashed, with the owner of O'Malley's Bat confirming that French troublemakers had antagonised the English before police used tear gas to get control of the situation.

Now, video has emerged of a large group of English chanting 'No Surrender to the IRA' in Marseille, a song that the English fanbase have been warned not to sing by their own Association.

The sectarian chant rang around Parkhead when Roy Hodgson's men played Scotland in a friendly and following that match the English FA issued a stern warning that such songs would not be accepted.
