Man in serious condition after assaults during Celtic Scottish Premiership win celebrations | UK News
A man remains in a serious condition in hospital after being attacked during celebrations of Celtic’s Scottish Premiership title win, Police Scotland has said.
Two other men also needed treatment following assaults as thousands of the club’s fans gathered in Glasgow Cross on Saturday.
Police were also targeted but none were injured.
In all, 10 people were arrested and eight people were handed fixed-penalty fines.
Rubbish – including plastic bags, bottles and cans – was also left strewn throughout the city centre after the celebrations.
Celtic signed off the season with a thumping 5-0 home win against Aberdeen, although the Parkhead side had secured the trophy even before kick-off.
It was the side’s 11th league title in 12 years.
