Celtic manager Fran Alonso was headbutted by a Rangers coach following a fiery Glasgow derby in the Scottish Women’s Premier League.
The incident took place after a 1-1 draw at Broadwood on Monday.
A late goal by Caitlyn Hayes secured a point for the Hoops as they closed the gap to league leaders Glasgow City.
Brogan Hay put the home side ahead after half an hour of the first game after the league split into the top six.
Celtic equalised in the ninth minute of injury time to reduce the gap at the top of the table to eight points with nine games to go.
But after the game finished Rangers coach Craig McPherson appeared to headbutt Alonso to the back of the head as he greeted the players leaving the pitch.
In his interview on Sky Sports the Celtic manager claimed that the former Morton player also called him a “little rat” during the fracas.
Alonso said: “I did not see it as he came from behind. I do not know, I did not talk to him the whole game.
“Obviously you are disappointed to concede a goal in the last minute, I totally get it but I don’t know why I was called little rat.”
When asked about the incident Rangers manager Malky Thomson said: “Without me seeing it I wouldn’t comment. If that is the case there will be an investigation and we will look at it.”
Current champions Rangers are now nine points behind the league leaders and one behind their Old Firm rivals following the game that was shown live on Sky Sports.
