‘An unacceptable level of anti-social behaviour’: Glasgow’s top police confirm arrest after Celtic fans gather in city center
Six people have been arrested after Celtic fans gathered in Glasgow city center today to celebrate their club’s Scottish Premiership title win.
Mark Sutherland, the city’s top superintendent of police, divisional commander of the Greater Glasgow Division, said in a statement: “Police Scotland is a human rights-based organization that upholds our values of integrity, fairness, respect and a commitment to uphold the human rights that we are.” Whatever his heart does.
“This afternoon thousands of Celtic supporters gathered to celebrate their team’s achievement in the field of Glasgow Cross.
“A proportional policing plan was in place that facilitated gathering, prioritized public safety and sought to minimize disruption to businesses and communities.
“While there was an unacceptable level of antisocial behavior and littering, there was no serious incident or disorder.
“There were a few outbreaks of minor disorder and our officers acted swiftly and vigorously to contain the escalation and protect security.
“Six arrests were made during the evening for offenses including assault and acts of public disorder.
“Another four people were issued with definite penalty notices.”
Some videos have surfaced on social media showing some alleged disorder.
