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.
We’re do what the f we want in OUR OWN stadium , oh and we do a lap of honour each & EVERY game !!!
Oh and if anyone is to blame I suggest you contact one eye Dave , hurting porker

Celtic walk around the pitch every home game yet somehow it’s only the easily offended blue animals who react so violently and think it’s acceptable behaviour to trample over their own disabled supporters.

Seems the police now don’t like Celtic players sharing a win with their fans, Something they have done for a long time at home, away and abroad.
But now the police in this wee country have decided because others behave badly they won’t allow it. A poor decision by police.

may be PFS should concentrate on what they are paid too do, we are still waiting on them commiting to the safety of celtic fans at ibrox. also are PFS going to blame goal scorers for bringing havoc to the scottish game or blame goalkeepers for not stopping the goals.

Celtic can’t do a lap of honour in their own stadium, as done after every home game, just incase certain away fans can’t handle it?

Pandering to the Neanderthals in the rangers support as usual. Assuring them it’s not their fault.
If grown men can’t contain themselves when the opposing teams walks by clapping, perhaps football isn’t for them.

Joined by Brendan Rodgers they saluted the fans in the South Stand then made their way clockwise around the ground.
When they approached the small wedge of away fans in the Lisbon Lions 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.
