Council chiefs have revealed talks are ongoing with Police Scotland ahead of Celtic fans potentially gathering.

Glasgow City Council has said they are aware of the 'potential' of fans gathering outside Celtic Park should the Hoops clinch the Scottish Premiership title tonight.

Due to this, the local authority has said they are continuing to 'monitor the situation closely'.

The council has also revealed discussions are being held with Police Scotland and the clubs on how they can deal with the gatherings appropriately.

It comes as Celtic could win the Scottish Premiership title tonight (Wednesday, May 15) by securing a point against Kilmarnock - with celebrations also expected to take place after the league's last game on Saturday.

On Saturday, the Glasgow club will take on St Mirren.

After that, fans are then expected to head towards the city centre, where their routine party down at the Gallowgate and Trongate takes place.

Previously, football-related gatherings in the city's Trongate and Gallowgate areas have led to 'unacceptable behaviour', Glasgow City Council have said.

On top of that, the gatherings caused 'significant disruption and costly damage to the city'. 

In 2023, Celtic fans gathered in the Trongate to celebrate Trophy Day after their club won the Scottish Premiership title.

Following the event, several people were arrested and multiple were reportedly injured.

A spokesperson for Glasgow City Council said: “We are aware of the potential for fans to gather publicly as the football season reaches its conclusion and we continue to monitor the situation closely.

“Previous football-related gatherings in Trongate and George Square have led to unacceptable behaviour that has caused significant disruption and costly damage to the city.

“Discussions with Police Scotland and clubs are on-going on how such gathering can be dealt with appropriately and disruption to local communities minimised.”
