Two men have been arrested in connection with disorder at Rangers fans title celebrations in Glasgow earlier this month.

Police have warned that the arrests are ‘just the beginning’ as they look to catch those responsible for the anti-social behaviour and violence that took place in the city on Saturday, May 15.

Thousands of fans took to Ibrox Park and the city centre’s George Square on the day the Premiership trophy was awarded for the celebrations that led to the public disorder which was widely criticised by the First Minister, Police Scotland and others.

The men, aged 34 and 44, have been charged in relation to the incident and will appear at court at a later date.

That brings the total number of people arrested in connection with the incident to 30.

Officers leading the investigation say they are doing ‘everything possible’, including scouring CCTV images and social media content, and say the public can ‘rest assured’ that anyone involved will be arrested.

Detective Inspector Craig Warren said: “These arrests are just the beginning and the public can be confident we are doing everything possible to identify those responsible for the violence and disorder that took place.

“This will take time due to the numbers involved but rest assured, if you were involved in causing this disorder, violence or anti-social behaviour you will be arrested.

“We are continuing to review CCTV, video and still images and I would appeal to anyone who may have captured incidents on their mobiles to please get in touch with us. You may have footage that could help us in our investigation and it’s vital we speak with you.

“The Major Incident Public Portal (MIPP) is available for the public to send any information, photographs or images directly to the investigation team.

“There has been footage circulating on social media covering the events in George Square. If you recognise people involved in these acts of violence and disorder, please let us know. You can contact 101.”
