First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has told how she needs "assurances" before allowing the third Old Firm derby of the season to go ahead.

Celtic are set to face champions Rangers on March 21, but Ms Sturgeon told today that major discussions will have to be had before the match is given the green light.

Sturgeon has said Rangers “did not do nearly enough” to help avoid fans celebrating after their league victory.

Fans congregated in George Square and outside Ibrox Stadium after their side took their first top-flight title in 10 years.

On Tuesday, the First Minister told Holyrood told MSPs she shared the “anger” over the “disgraceful” behaviour and that she would be speaking with Police Scotland’s Chief Constable (Iain Livingstone) later that day to avoid a similar situation in future.

Speaking to Parliament today about the upcoming Old Firm fixture, she said: "In terms of future fixtures, I said in my opening remarks, there's a variety of discussions happening over course of this week, including one between myself and the chief constable later today.

"We will report back on those in due course, certainly before the scheduled Old Firm match on the March 21.

"The reason why we've tried to keep elite sport and football generally going, is not for the benefit of the elite sports people but for the fans.

"Everyone is being deprived of so much right now that the ability to watch a football match and cheer on your team on the television should be something that people should have the ability to do.

"But a minority can't be allowed to act irresponsibly.

"I hope we don't have to spoil that for the majority but we will have to assure ourselves that there will be no repeat of the scenes that we saw at the weekend.

"That, frankly, is still very much work in progress."
