Humza Yousaf has spoken out after “unacceptable” Celtic fan celebrations over the weekend.

It comes after thousands of Hoops fans gathered in Glasgow city centre on Saturday (May 27) to celebrate the team winning the Scottish Premiership.

We reported 10 people were arrested and several injured, with police saying there was an "unacceptable level of anti-social behaviour" during the day.

Now The First Minister has backed Glasgow Central MP Alison Thewliss calls for football clubs to organise their own fan celebrations.

Speaking to Radio Clyde News Humza Yousaf said: “I think it's a pretty sensible suggestion from Alison Thewliss.

“The vast majority of football fans, if they are Celtic fans or indeed Rangers fans or any other fans frankly, celebrate in a way that is acceptable.

“They celebrate the important achievements of their club.

“It is that small minority I'm afraid of that really celebrates in a way that is simply unacceptable.

“That disorder that we saw, elements of that disorder we saw of course over the weekend, was just not acceptable.

“I do think clubs should pay a greater toll and certainly when it comes to celebrations.

“Perhaps there's something the clubs should do to facilitate that celebration, perhaps within their own stadiums or in another way.

“I would like clubs to take more responsibility for title celebrations that ensue.”

We previously reported how Glasgow Central MP Alison Thewliss told the BBC she believes football clubs should organise events for their fans.

She said: "My preference would be for the clubs to organise things so that there was safety for fans and residents and responsibility for ensuring everyone is looked after."

The SNP MP also condemned the "disruption and the mess" caused by the celebrations on Twitter and said football clubs should be billed for the clean-up.

She wrote: "I've had a number of complaints from local residents about the disruption and the mess from yesterday.

"Consistent with my call in previous years, I would suggest the football team responsible be billed by @GlasgowCC [Glasgow City Council] for the clear-up - in this instance @CelticFC."
