Celtic have promised to take action following the ‘near disaster’ at Tynecastle last night.

Various reports have emerged on social media highlighting the security issues that away fans faced as they tried to gain entry to watch the champions.

John Paul Taylor, Celtic’s SLO was swamped with messages on twitter last night and addressed the issues of the fans this morning.

There appeared to be a lack of lighting, signage and communications as supporters went through various checks with male and female fans split up to gain entry through the turnstiles.

It’s normal practise for officials of both clubs to meet with Police Scotland ahead of a fixture to go through security issues which can then be passed on to supporters.

Over the years Tynecastle has thrown up numerous problems for Celtic supporters with cases of fans being denied entry despite having valid match tickets.

On the pitch it was business as usual as goals from Ryan Christie and Olivier Ntcham gave Celtic their ninth successive SPFL Premiership victory to open up a five point lead at the top of the table.
