A man has been charged in connection with threats made to a referee in the wake of an Old Firm match.
Police Scotland said they were probing a “significant” volume of abuse sent to Kevin Clancy following the meeting between Celtic and Rangers on April 8.
The official’s family were allegedly targeted in a series of incidents after his contact details and personal information were posted online.
A 25-year-old man has since been arrested and charged with alleged “threatening communications”.
He will appear at Edinburgh Sheriff Court at a later date, according to the force.
A spokesperson said: “A 25-year-old man has been arrested and charged in connection with alleged threatening communications which were reported by the SFA on Tuesday, April 11.
“He has been released on an undertaking to appear at Edinburgh Sheriff Court at a later date.”
