Tottenham Hotspur have taken the decision to ban 48 of their own fans after illegal activity against Red Star Belgrade in the Champions League earlier this month.

Spurs ran away as 5-0 leaders against the Serbian club, but the Red Star away fans managed to make the headlines still.

This came after Red Star were banned from selling away tickets for the match as a punishment for racist chanting in a qualifying match in the same competition earlier in the season.

Despite this, over 200 away fans managed to find their way into the new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, kickstarting an investigation by Spurs to find exactly how this happened.

The club found that some One Hotspur members had purchased multiple tickets and then illegally sold them on to Red Star fans (BBC).

As a result, Tottenham have banned 48 members, something that many Spurs fans seem to agree with, although others highlighted issues with the decision.

Some fans reacted to the news on Twitter:
