The club website stated thieves targeted external areas of the stadium and reported thefts have also taken place at neighbouring businesses.

No information has been given about what was stolen, but the club says it is looking at improving security in the external areas where the thefts took place.

The statement read: "Unfortunately, some very unsavoury characters have both committed theft and attempted to commit theft in the external areas of the Caledonian Stadium and the same has happened with some of our near neighbour businesses.

"Fortunately we have excellent CCTV and Police Scotland are now investigating these incidents and we have also stepped up our vigilance with regards to our CCTV system in the areas under attack.

"It is particularly shameful that we have such scavengers during these difficult times for all Highland businesses who are fighting hard to maintain some form of normality for our hard working community.

Meanwhile Caley Thistle have said it has had a positive start to its ICT Togetherness campaign to deliver food parcels to help senior citizens during the coronavirus.

The statement said: "Some fans have been so generous from further afield and have even bought food and supplies on Amazon with the delivery address being Caledonian Stadium.

"We will be thanking everyone in person and online wherever possible in the coming difficult days."

The club have also received donations to the club who say they are facing "huge financial pressure' as the football season is suspended, with one person donating over £10,000.

The statement said: "We had two fans walk into the stadium this week with the most generous of donations towards the upkeep of the club.

"Both ladies, one made a very kind three figure donation and the second who is a 25 year-long supporter paid us a stunning five figure sum.

"Both of these amazing gestures are appreciated beyond words as the club is currently under huge financial pressure and both have gone some way to restoring our faith in humanity. Our faith in our supporters has never waivered. "
