The Celtic Research twitter account has received a copy of the Police Scotland report into events before the Glasgow Derby on September 2.

It’s not too far fetched to say that there could have been fatalities before the match as new arrangements were brought in with thousands of Celtic fans forced into new arrangements to accommodate 800 fans from the Ibrox club.

The tone and language used throughout the Police Scotland report is shocking, it is one step down from the approach of The Sun to the Hillsborough tragedy in 1989 in terms of disdain and contempt for citizens.

For reasons best known to themselves the entire area from Parkhead Cross to the former school site on London Road was out of bounds to Celtic supporters.

After 20 years without any problems thousands of extra supporters had to use the Janefield Tunnel under the North Stand with Police Scotland slow to react as the overcrowding built up.

Sending in horses wasn’t a sensible move as supporters climbed a cemetery wall to escape the crush.

After the match Police Scotland and Celtic congratulated each other on their handling of the situation before both later ordered independent reviews which have still to be published.
