Fan dies after fall during Scotland v Republic of Ireland qualifier

A spectator died after falling in a stairwell at Glasgow's Celtic Park after Friday night's European Championship qualifier between Scotland and the Republic of Ireland.

Police Scotland and the Scottish Ambulance Service attended the scene at exit 33 of the ground and the 22-year-old man was transferred to Glasgow Royal Infirmary where he later died.

A police spokesman said: "There are no suspicious circumstances and a report will be prepared for the procurator fiscal."

Scotland had to settle for a 2-2 European Championship qualifying draw in Warsaw after coming from behind to threaten a famous win against a Poland side fresh from victory over world champions Germany.

The Poles looked set to build on their historic triumph when Krzysztof Maczynski fired them into an 11th-minute lead following a mistake by Alan Hutton.

But Shaun Maloney finished off an excellent move seven minutes later and Scotland took a second-half lead when Steven Naismith flicked home James Morrison's long free-kick.

However, Arkadiusz Milik atoned for some earlier misses when he fired home with 14 minutes left after Hutton was caught out again.

Scotland were ultimately grateful for the Group D point after surviving a late barrage that saw Kamil Grosicki hit the post.
