A NUMBER of alleged hate-related crimes during the Rangers v Celtic match in Glasgow are being investigated, Police Scotland said.

The Old Firm game on Sunday afternoon resulted in a 3-3 draw.

Police said no arrests were made at Ibrox Stadium, but a small number of reports relating to hate crimes are being assessed.

Officers were also informed that an object had been thrown, striking Celtic assistant manager John Kennedy.

A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “We are aware of an object being thrown at Ibrox Stadium, Glasgow, during the Rangers v Celtic match.

“One man was struck but did not require treatment and inquiries are ongoing.”

However, Celtic said they will enter discussion with Rangers about their “serious concerns” following objects being thrown in the direction of the away dugout during yesterday’s match.

On the pitch, fans enjoyed a pulsating match between the Premiership’s title-chasing duo. But off the park, there were unsavoury scenes as objects were thrown from the crowd at members of the Celtic staff who were sitting pitchside.

Prior to the hour-mark, Sky Sports commentary Ian Crocker revealed that Celtic assistant manager John Kennedy appeared to be struck by missiles thrown from the home crowd.

This incident is now the subject of a Police Scotland investigation.

Two police officers could be seen in conversation with Kennedy after the incident, with coins believed to have been the objects thrown form the crowd.

In a short statement, Celtic have hit out at the incident, stating they will be going to Rangers over the “unacceptable” matter.

A Celtic spokesperson said yesterday: “It is totally unacceptable that our staff have once again been targeted in this way.

“We will be raising our serious concerns with Rangers and we understand that the matter is currently being investigated by Police Scotland.”

It is understood a small number of reports were received by the force relating to alleged hate crimes during the match, with these being assessed and police inquiries continuing.

A Rangers spokesperson confirmed the club were assisting Police Scotland with their inquiries.

Meanwhile, a heated exchange between Todd Cantwell of Rangers and Celtic midfielder Callum McGregor sparked an on-field rammy at the end of the game.

As referee John Beaton called time on the six-goal thriller of a derby match, a coming together of players from both sides occurred.
