A man has been charged with disorder-related offences following a protest outside Celtic Park.
Hundreds of fans gathered at the Glasgow stadium to call for manager Neil Lennon’s sacking on Sunday evening after a 2-0 defeat by Ross County.
The League Cup exit extended a bad run of form, which sees Celtic 11 points behind Rangers in the league as they chase a historic tenth title in a row.
During the demonstration, a barrier was breached before supporters clashed with police officers during the protest.
Celtic players and staff had to be escorted from the stadium, with the club later condemning the violent scenes. Lennon could hear the angry chants calling for his head from inside the stadium.
On Thursday, ahead of Celtic’s Europa League match with AC Milan, Police Scotland confirmed that a 22-year-old man had been arrested and charged in connection with disorder-related offences.
He is due to appear at Glasgow Sheriff Court at a later date.
Chief superintendent Mark Sutherland said: “Our investigation into the incident outside Celtic Park on Sunday continues and I would like to reiterate that enquiries are ongoing to establish those involved.
“Disorder of this nature will not be tolerated and any repeat of the scenes witnessed last weekend will be met with a robust police response.
“The Scottish Government regulations are quite clear that these types of demonstrations are prohibited in areas under level four restrictions, so I would urge people to find alternative ways to protest, such as online, to help prevent the spread of coronavirus and save lives.
“Officers will continue to engage with people to explain the restrictions in place. Our response to any protest will be measured and appropriate but we will use enforcement where required.”
