Five people have been arrested in connection with crowd trouble at Celtic's 5-0 victory over Motherwell at Fir Park, say Police Scotland.

An estimated £10,000 of damage was caused to seats in a section housing Celtic fans, a flare was let off in the same area before the game and two green smoke bombs were thrown on to the pitch during Friday's Scottish Premiership match. There were also disturbances and vandalism in Motherwell both before and after the game.

Celtic said they were ''appalled'' by the actions and issued precautionary suspensions to 128 supporters, while 250 season-ticket holders seated in the Green Brigade fans group's corner of Celtic Park are to be moved to other parts of the ground.
