A Celtic fans was ejected out of today’s win over Hearts after being self policed.

Five minutes from the interval Fraser Forster raced out of his penalty box and earned a caution from Willie Collum but it proved to be the end of the match for one fan behind the keeper’s goal.

A bottle was thrown onto the pitch with fans instantly turning on the individual who was quickly ejected from the stadium.

Football fans have talked a lot about self policing but there are very few examples of supporters turning in ‘one of their own’ giving the hooligans a comfort blanket to throw missiles.

At Tynecastle last November Neil Lennon was hit by a missile thrown from the main stand, no Hearts fan has ever been charged.

In March a bottle of Buckfast was thrown at Scott Sinclair during a Scottish Cup tie at Easter Road. The police and stewards were unable to identify the fan with Hibs later admitting that their CCTV was faulty and needed upgrading.
