Mikael Lustig has revealed that he made an apology to the police for his famous hat celebration.

Needing a win to clinch the league title in April last year James Forrest sent Celtic 3-0 up in the Glasgow derby just before half-time as the home fans erupted in joy.

As he joined the celebrations in front of the South Stand Lustig passed a police officer, grabbed their hat for a few seconds to create an image captured in print for Celtic supporters to enjoy.

The hat was quickly passed back but in an interview with The Sun the defender revealed that there was some follow up to account for.

The reaction was mostly positive but I was told the police in Scotland weren’t happy with me.

I had to call them and apologise. After that. everything went quiet. I enjoy having fun but clearly wearing a police hat was not something I planned before the match.

Lustig was in action last night as Sweden lost 3-0 against Spain in the Bernabeu in a Euro 2020 qualifier with two of the goals coming in the last five minutes.

With his Celtic deal expired the defender will announce this week whether he will accept a new hoops deal to resume working with Neil Lennon.

Lustig is believed that have offers from clubs in Sweden and elsewhere.
