Danish police praise Celtic fans on Copenhagen trip

Danish police have thanked Celtic fans who made the journey to Copenhagen to watch their team in Europa League action after “no registered problems” on Thursday.

The Scottish champions came away from Denmark with a credible 1-1 draw to set them up for a crunch second leg in Glasgow next week.

And the thousands of fans who travelled to back Neil Lennon’s men have now been praised by the city’s police force.

After the game Københavns Politi wrote on Twitter: “We want to thank the fans of @Celticfc it’s been great having you guys in town – no registered problems during the night. We wish you a safe journey back to Scotland.”

Odsonne Edoaurd opened the scoring for Celtic before a second half goal for the hosts brought the score level.

The visitors also had goalkeeper Fraser Forster to thank after the big Englishman saved a late penalty after a hand ball by Ryan Christie was caught on VAR.
