Chris Sutton has warned against the nasty undercurrent that has effected Scottish football this season.
Straight after Celtic’s second goal against St Mirren from Ryan Christie a very loud firework was thrown from behind the goal that left Saints keeper Vaclav Hladky badly shaken.
No contact was made with the firework but the noise of it alarmed some of the Celtic players who were running back to their own half for the restart.
Celtic comfortable tonight 2-0… Weah exciting and good to see Christie back who brought real energy Celtic have missed???????? However Scottish football this season has had a nasty undercurrent in the stands and the moron who threw the firecracker isn’t a true fan of Celtic…

Tonight’s results maintain Celtic’s 13 point lead at the top of the SPFL table with four more required from the six remaining matches to make it eight-in-a-row.
On Saturday the hoops are at home to Livingston, if they win that match the title will be clinched of Steven Gerrard’s side fail to take full points from Motherwell the following day.
In the post split fixtures Celtic are expected to be at home to Kilmarnock and Hearts with away fixtures at Easter Road, Ibrox and Pittodrie.
