Neil Lennon has offered a defence of Celtic fans after a section of the Hoops support disrupted a minute's silence for Remembrance Day on Sunday.

With Armistice Day falling yesterday, clubs all around the UK paid their respects with a period of silence and poppies were also printed onto the players' shirts.

As Celtic and Aberdeen lined up around the centre circle at Celtic Park to fall silent, a section of the stadium failed to observe the reflection.

Referee Willie Collum was forced to end the silence early and broadcaster Sky Sports issued an apology for the disruption.

Former Celtic boss Lennon appeared on PLZ Soccer this evening and he gave his reaction after watching the game from inside the stadium.

He said: "I was at the game and I wasn't aware of too much of it. So, I don't know if this has been blown out of proportion, but you know Celtic fans make their points when it comes to anything involving the British Army of the Royal Family and for me that is their right to do that. It doesn't look good at times but we expect it now."

Our reporter Matthew Lindsay was at the match and he gave his own account of events prior to kick-off at Celtic Park.

He explained: "The pre-match period of silence was disrupted by chanting in the safe-standing section at Parkhead. 

"Many fans booed around the ground, presumably at chanting, but maybe because there was a period of silence. It didn't last very long as Willie Collum ended it pretty sharply."
