Police investigating 'misuse of fireworks' outside Celtic Park
The incident happened before Celtic's clash with Livingston on Saturday afternoon
Police are investigating 'misuse of fireworks' outside Celtic Park on Saturday afternoon, after pyrotechnics were heard during the two minutes' silence being observed in honour of Prince Philip.
Ahead of all matches across the country a silence has been observed in honour of Prince Philip, who passed away on Friday at the age of 99 at Windsor Castle.
However as both sets of players at Celtic Park bowed their heads and remembered the duke, the sound of fireworks could be heard outside the ground. The sounds of the fireworks could be heard clearly on television and radio coverage of the match.
