Multiple arrests were made amid a 'heated' atmosphere at the Celtic game.

The home side welcomed Hearts to Parkhead but lost 2-0, resulting in fan tension and frustration inside the stands.

We previously reported that fans were 'close to fisticuffs' with chants of 'sack the board' and 'Lawwell get to f***' heard directed at the director's box.

Officers engaged in a police plan for the match, and three men were arrested and charged in connection to alleged acts of disorder.

Another two men, aged 17 and 26, will be reported to the procurator fiscal in connection with alleged disorder. 

A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “A comprehensive police plan was in place for the match between Celtic and Hearts, with the appropriate resources allocated to the event to ensure safety and minimise disruption to the wider public.

“Three men were arrested and charged in relation to acts of disorder surrounding the event.

“They are expected to appear at Glasgow Sheriff Court at a later date.

“Two further males, one aged 17 and one aged 26, will be reported to the Procurator Fiscal in relation to disorder offences.”

It comes after we reported that supporters were said to have clashed between themselves which resulted in intervention from security and stewards at Parkhead.

Michael Stewart told BBC Open All Mics: "Things are getting heated here by the way, there are folk almost having fisticuff fights in front of me."
