FC Copenhagen police have heaped praise on well-behaved Celtic fans after yesterday evening's Europa League first-leg went without incident.

Danish cops thanked Hoops fans for their lack of trouble-making as the two sides played out a 1-1 draw on the pitch.

Celtic fans have a good reputation within European football and have won awards from UEFA in the past. However, by the same token there have also been incidents in previous seasons involving supporters clashing with foreign police and other fans.

Copenhagen officers, though, were delighted with the Glasgow side and took to social media to say thank you. "We want to thank the fans of Celtic FC", Kobenhavn Politi wrote on Twitter. "It's been great having you guys in town.

"No registered problems during the night. We wish you a safe journey back to Scotland."

The game at Parken Stadium was played in good spirits with both sets of fans even trying to out-dance each other at half-time.

Odsonne Edouard opened the scoring with an exquisite lob to seal Celtic's away goal before Dame N'Doye levelled.
