Celtic beat Rangers 5-1 in the first Old-Firm derby in four years but the game was marred by displays of hate in the stadium.

Rangers fans were accused of causing thousands of pounds worth of damage to Parkhead by trashing toilets.

According to the Daily Record fixtures and roof panels were ripped out of the room.

Celtic and Rangers fans took to social media over the weekend to condemn the display.

Alan Grogan wrote: "As a Celtic fan I am sickened to see the effigies of hanged rangers fans at Parkhead. Shocking!"

Despite the pictures, police in Scotalnd praised both sets of fans following the clash.





Chief Superintendent Brian McInulty said: “I would like to thank all the supporters who came to enjoy the match today in a safe and responsible manner.

“You listened to what we asked and behaved accordingly which has helped our officers ensure the safety of everyone attending the venue.

“All fans came out to enjoy the match and soak up the atmosphere and this is what football should be all about.

“I sincerely hope that the good spirits of both sets of supporters continues throughout the rest of the day and the rest of the evening.”
