Suspicious Package found at Celtic Park


Strathclyde Police are investigating a suspicious package which has been found at Celtic Park. According to reports from STV News and BBC Scotland, the package was found at Celtic’s football stadium this morning.

Police were called at around 10.30am and officers remain at the scene. A spokeswoman for Strathclyde Police said: “We can confirm that we are currently investigating a suspicious package discovered at Celtic FC today. Inquiries are ongoing.”

A spokeswoman for Celtic said there was no comment at this time but there may be a statement later.

There have been unconfimed reports that the package contained bullets and was addressed to manager Neil Lennon.

The news of this latest package, comes hours after two men, along with three others were arrested in Ayrshire in connection with parcel bomb attacks on Celtic manager Neil Lennon, Paul McBride QC and former MSP Trish Godman.

And it comes 24 hours after Neil Lennon was attacked by a Hearts fan on the touchline during a league game between Hearts and Celtic in which the Parkhead side won 3-0.
