Fans 'credit' to club and country

Queen of the South fans
The behaviour of Queen of the South fans was praised by police

Queen of the South fans have been hailed as "a great credit both to their club and to Scotland" by Danish police.

About 850 supporters of the Dumfries club travelled to Denmark to watch Tuesday night's Uefa Cup clash with FC Nordsjaelland.

Despite the fact that their team was eliminated, local police said their behaviour was impressive.

They also thanked Dumfries and Galloway Constabulary for helping to ensure the event passed "so smoothly".

Great praise should be passed on to those fortunate enough to be at the match
Ch Insp Mickey Collins

Insp Rune Hamann said: "It was a pleasure hosting such a visit by Queen of the South whose supporters were extremely well behaved and a great credit both to their club and to Scotland.

"Copenhagen was particularly busy in the build up to and after the match with a carnival, party atmosphere being evident.

"I look forward to welcoming Queen of the South and their terrific supporters back in Denmark in the future."

Ch Insp Mickey Collins from Dumfries and Galloway Constabulary said the fans were a "pleasure to work along with".

He added: "Despite the huge numbers of supporters who travelled to Denmark there were no arrests, incidents or issues of any concern.

"Great praise should be passed on to those fortunate enough to be at the match."
