Manchester United have condemned the 'criminal activity' of a minority of fans protesting against the Glazers at Old Trafford on Sunday and say they will sanction any season ticket holders involved.

The club had to postpone yesterday's Premier League clash with Liverpool after supporters managed to get inside the stadium and onto the pitch, while tensions threatened to escalate outside following a handful of clashes between protestors and police.

While United have acknowledged fans' right to protest and show their dissatisfaction towards the Glazers, they believe some fans crossed a line and will be reprimanded.

A statement read: 'Following events yesterday, while many fans wanted to exercise their right to protest and express their opinion peacefully, some were intent on disrupting the team's preparation and the game itself, as evidenced by activity at the Lowry Hotel and at the stadium.

'The majority of our fans have and will condemn criminal damage, along with any violence towards club staff, police or other fans, and these now become a police matter.

'The club has no desire to see peaceful protestors punished, but will work with the police to identify those involved in criminal activity, and will also issue its own sanctions to any season ticket holder or member identified, per the published sanctions policy.

'We remain committed to dialogue and engagement with our fans through the Fans Forum and other appropriate channels.
