Hamburg have been relegated from the Bundesliga for the first time ever, despite beating Borussia Mönchengladbach 2-1 on the final day of the season.

With Wolfsburg winning 4-1 at home to Koln, Hamburg’s fate was sealed with a section of the home fans at the Volksparkstadion stopping the game late on, courtesy of a dramatic display of fireworks and flares which were hurled onto the pitch.

The local police were no doubt primed for such a protest from the fans, quickly swarming onto the pitch in front of the offending fans.

The players were then ushered off the pitch in sad scenes for the only ever-present side left in the Bundesliga.

A rather send end to an incredible run in the top-flight for Die Rothosen.

Alas, their famous stadium clock, which counted the time the club had been in the Bundesliga, will now be re-set to zero.

All a far cry from 1983 and that Felix Magath-inspired 1-0 European Cup final win over Juventus.
