Court papers state Ross conducted himself in a disorderly manner at the match.

It is claimed he displayed a banner which bore an offensive sectarian slogan.

Ross, of Aberdeen, is further stated to have committed breach of the peace.

The alleged offence is said to have been aggravated by religious prejudice.

Ross is also stated to have been on bail from Aberdeen Sheriff Court at the time.

Ross - wearing a red and white tie in the dock - pleaded not guilty on Tuesday to the single charge.

His lawyer Paul Sutherland told Glasgow Sheriff Court that the defence don't have the CCTV being used in the case.

Sheriff Vincent Lunny stated: "The CCTV will show what's said on the banner and who is holding it."

Prosecutor Ramsay Cunningham claimed that the CCTV has been disclosed but will check if there has been an admin error.

A trial was fixed for the end of the month and Ross remains on bail meantime.
