Eight arrested at Old Firm game as Rangers & Celtic say missiles were thrown

Eight arrests were made at Sunday's Old Firm game for "disorder, pyrotechnics and religiously aggravated offences".

Rangers claim fans were "attacked by bottles and other missiles" at Celtic Park on Sunday, with the club also set to report "possible hate crimes" to Police Scotland.

The Ibrox club say they have received reports of injuries to elderly and disabled supporters.

Rangers drew 1-1 with Celtic in the Premiership encounter, which kept the Hoops six points clear of their Old Firm rivals at the top of the table with three fixtures remaining.

In a statement, a Rangers spokesperson said: "We are disappointed with the police response after the Old Firm derby at Parkhead today.

Our support was left unprotected as they were attacked by bottles and other missiles.

"Reports so far include injuries to elderly and disabled supporters.

"Furthermore, we are collating evidence of possible hate crimes which will be reported to Police Scotland as a matter of urgency.

"We intend to raise our concerns with Police Scotland and Celtic during the debrief."
