Footage of Dundee United and St Mirren fans taking part in a snowball fight during Friday night’s Championship clash has gone viral.
The game came close to being called off after blizzard conditions hit the West Coast, with the Paisley 2021 Stadium affected by snowfall.
Buddies fans and the club worked to ensure the game went ahead, with supporters even looking out their shovels to clear the pavement around the grounds.
St Mirren won the match 2-0, however footage of both sets of fans chucking snowballs at each other has been widely shared across social media.

Fair play to Dundee United fans tonight. Joined in the minutes applause, engaged with us in a well contested snowball fight, joined forces in giving Alex Rae pelters, made a lot of noise and travelled in numbers exceeding 1,200 👏🏻👍🏻
Safe journey home @CeresArabs

⚽️ Love that there were 6,214 at St Mirren v Dundee United. Over 1,000 away fans. This time of year. Second tier. Weather conditions. Brilliant 👍🏻

It's nice to see something nice happening at a football match rather than something that makes the news because of violence,well done i say!

@FootballRamble after a drab first half this was a magnificent battle to watch. Ally McCoist in the BT sport box came under fire too.
