Cllr Mervyn Jones said: “I am disgusted that the BNP would try to take advantage of a football match to try and canvass support for their sickening views.
“I am glad that Glentoran fans have given this group the red card as this type of activity has no place anywhere near our sports grounds.
“As a Glentoran supporter, I strongly resent any attempt to link Glentoran Football Club to the BNP. Inside the ground I spoke to a number of people and everyone I spoke to was opposed the presence of the BNP, which might be considered the only positive thing to come from this disgusting episode.
“It is despicable that the BNP was campaigning in relation to our troops, as this group should not be trying to using those who serve our country so bravely as a pawn in their despicable games.”
