Hamilton and Celtic are facing Scottish FA charges for allegedly failing to “conduct themselves in an orderly fashion” during Sunday’s match.

An incident during the first half saw players from each team confront one another and surround referee Nick Walsh after a coming together between Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths and Hamilton defender Sam Woods.

The clubs now face a hearing at Hampden on February 20 over the alleged breach of disciplinary rule 204.

Celtic went on to win the match 4-1 with goals from Odsonne Edouard, Christopher Jullien and James Forrest.

Griffiths will face no action over an alleged stamp on Woods, which was reviewed by three former top- flight referees.
