A THIRD Celtic fan was stabbed in Rome early this morning – just hours after the Hoops’ clash with Lazio.
The male supporter, believed to be 20-years-old, was attacked at around 2.30am in the city’s Via Leone in the Prato district.
He is believed to have been stabbed in the buttocks and was rushed to hospital.
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.

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.”
