A teenage Rangers fan has admitted injuring a Celtic supporter by throwing a glass bottle at the away crowd.

Lee Findlay, 18, struck Owen Murphy at Ibrox Stadium on January 2, 2023.

The Gers hosted their city rivals in a match which ended 2-2 with Kyogo Furuhashi netting a late equalizer for the visitors.

Celtic have since rejected tickets for Ibrox which the Hoops attributed to safety concerns at the stadium.

The club cited incidents where fans and staff have been hit by objects thrown by home supporters.

The last game between the pair was played entirely in front of Rangers supporters and Celtic went on to win 1-0.

Court papers state in the previous Ibrox fixture, Findlay "culpably and recklessly" threw a glass bottle into a crowd of opposing football supporters.

The charge goes on to say that the bottle struck Mr Murphy on the head to his injury and permanent disfigurement.

Findlay pled guilty today at Glasgow Sheriff Court to the single charge.

Prosecutor Louise James requested a football banning order be imposed upon Findlay.

Sentence was deferred pending background reports by Sheriff Ian Ferguson where more information surrounding the circumstances will be heard.

The sheriff stated that the matter was "extremely serious".

Consideration of a football banning order has also been deferred for next month's hearing.

Findlay, of Motherwell, North Lanarkshire, was granted bail meantime.
