Police are investigating several incidents of alleged disorder among Celtic fans who travelled to Dingwall for the club’s Premiership match against Ross County on Wednesday night.

One man, aged 32, has been arrested and charged officers are liaising with Ross County.

Celtic won the match 2-1 after Anthony Ralston headed in from a couple of yards in added time to spark a pitch invasion by ecstatic Hoops fans.

Celtic manager Ange Postecoglou said: “The fans have had a long drive up and it’s a long drive home.

“I hope they have calmed down and stay safe on the roads back.

“When you score a last-second winner, not a last-minute one, in front of them then you can imagine there’d be some overexuberance there.

“It was great for them because they have had a long journey and there’s a real bond developing between the team and the fans. Nights like tonight help that as well.”

The result means are four points behind Rangers at the top of the cinch Premiership.

A spokesperson for Police Scotland said: “Police Scotland is liaising with Ross County Football Club following incidents of disorder during the clubs match with Celtic on Wednesday, 16 December, 2021.

“One man aged 32 has been arrested and charged in connection and is due to appear at court at a later date. 

“Enquiries are ongoing.”
