Police Scotland make five arrests over Fir Park disorder



Police Scotland have arrested five Celtic fans in connection with crowd trouble during Friday night’s Scottish Premiership game between Motherwell and Celtic at Fir Park.

Damage worth around £10,000 was caused as a small element of the Celtic support wrecked seats.

According to Police, there were trouble before and after the match, not to mention acts of vandalism. There were also 18 smoke bombs, one flare and three fireworks set off during the game, with several thrown onto the pitch.

In retaliation to what the Parkhead side deemed as ‘appalling’ scenes, Celtic provisionally banned 128 fans from home and away games and relocated 250 season ticket holders from section 111 of Celtic Park – which houses the ULTRAs group, the Green Brigade.

Celtic won the match 5-0.
