Police arrested 28 people after thousands of Rangers breached lockdown rules in Glasgow to celebrate the club’s first Scottish Premiership title in a decade.

Seven people were given fixed penalty notices or will be reported to the Procurator Fiscal, according to Chief Superintendent Mark Sutherland.

Despite the criticism, Mr Sutherland said: “Our priority was public safety and this included reducing the risk of disorder, road safety and effective crowd management among the complexities of a vociferous crowd. This included established crowd control measures to prevent serious disorder in multiple areas and protect the public.”

Mass gatherings are still banned and the public are urged not to go outside as Scotland is currently under tier 4 restrictions.

Meanwhile, Rangers said in a statement on Monday afternoon that they had contacted relevant authorities in preparation for the celebrations.
