Crowd trouble mars LionsXII clash

Irate  Terengganu fans  seems didn't just target the LionsXII fans' buses on Saturday night.

They also vented their frustration at stadium property and an official or two after their side crashed out of the FA Cup on away goals - despite beating the LionsXII 3-2 in their home leg of the Malaysian FA Cup semi-finals.

The Star Online reported that angry fans threw stones at the car of the state's Chief Minister Ahmad Razif Abdul Rahman.

Plastic seats were torn out from the stands at the Sultan Mizan Zainal Abidin Stadium in Kuala Terengganuand a glass door at the entrance was also destroyed.

An ambulance had reportedly been burnt.

The unruly crowd prompted police to escort referee Amirul Izwan Yaacob from the field.

The official had initially given a crucial fourth goal to Ahmad Nordin Alias in the final minute of play, only to rule it out after his assistant referee raised his flag for offside.

The goal would have given Terengganu the goal they needed to qualify to the final. Instead, the two-leg tie ended 4-4 on aggregate.

Kuala Terengganu police chief ACP Idris Abdul Rafar has told the media that investigations were under way.
