England eased to a comfortable victory over Scotland during the World Cup qualifying clash on Friday night, but that didn't stop fans being embroiled in controversy. 

The trio of Daniel Sturridge, Adam Lallana and Gary Cahill struck to hand Gareth Southgate's side all three points. 

Despite England failing to find their best form throughout the course of the contest, the Scot's were unable to make the Three Lions pay. 

While things were fairly steady for England on the pitch, it's fair to say that things weren't as rosy in the stands. 

As you can see in the video below, an England supporter was left covered in blood in the home fans' section during the game. 

Stewards and police inevitably took action to isolate one supporter, who had been on the end of quite the beating.

It now remains to be seen as to whether any further action will be taken. 

Southgate reacts

Following England's comfortable win over Scotland, interim boss Southgate admitted that he has been enjoying his time as manager but is uncertain as to whether he will be handed the role on a permanent position. 

"I've loved it," he said, as per Sky Sports. "I've really enjoyed the role, the responsibility, the challenge of every part of it. I get that it's not quite as enjoyable if you don't get the results.

"It's been a brilliant experience. I've taken so much from it. As a group of staff, it's not just about me remember, we've created a good environment here.

"It's not my decision [whether he gets the job]. I was really pleased to be given the task to pick up the job in a difficult situation and I feel we've prepared the team really well. I've enjoyed that.

"We now have a different challenge to prepare for Spain, and the rest is out of my hands."

After their victory over Scotland, England remain two points clear at the summit of Group F. Ultimately, though, Southgate and co. will currently be gearing up to take on Spain in a friendly clash at Wembley on Tuesday night.
