It is understood his attacker then fled the scene on public transport.

A gang of Lazio ultras were later allegedly involved in a confrontation with Italian cops, which left one officer injured.

Twelve Italian men were later arrested by cops in the city centre.

We told earlier how Neil Lennon said he hopes Celtic’s sensational victory over Lazio cheers up the two Hoops fans who were stabbed in Rome earlier last night.

Armed hooligans attacked a bar full of Bhoys supporters, with the hooded hooligans ambushing the Flann O’Brien bar.

One of the victims was sitting outside when he was targeted by Lazio yobs, while another Celts supporter was also attacked during the ambush.

The Parkhead club today vowed to support the fans who were stabbed and Lennon revealed Hoops staff could visit them.

Speaking after his side’s victory, he said: “I have heard they’re stable and we wish them well.

“We’ll maybe get something to them or, if we get the chance, go and see them.

“I just hope they’re okay and get home safe.”
