Police Scotland have come under attack after claiming that the celebrations of Celtic players contributed to crowd trouble at the September Glasgow derby.

Celtic won the match 1-0 thanks to a goal from Olivier Ntcham with the goal and the final whistle greeted with typical celebrations.

either paid an average of £450 for a season ticket or £49 for a single match with the post match celebrations part of the deal.

Joined by Brendan Rodgers they saluted the in the South Stand then made their way clockwise around the ground.

When they approached the small wedge of away in the Stand closest to the South Stand dozens of away supporters gave it the big ‘haud me back Billy’ as they raced to the front of their section endangering a number of fellow fans in wheelchairs.

Now, less than a week after Peter Lawwell mentioned safety concerns about next month’s trip to Ibrox the Daily Record has been presented with a Police Scotland report blaming Celtic players for celebrating as a cause of unrest.

In April 2017 a home fan was able to get onto the pitch at Ibrox to approach Scott Brown without having to evade any police officers or stewards.
