SEVENTEEN people were arrested after Celtic’s Europa League clash with Dinamo Zagreb.

Three individuals were detained at Celtic Park for alleged breach of the peace and drunk and disorderly offences while 14 were charged with similar offences in the High Street in Glasgow.

Police said that some people were caught carrying smoke bombs and CS spray canisters.

All 17 are expected to appear at Glasgow Sheriff Court today.

There were also reports from witnesses suggesting Dinamo Zagreb fans had been surrounded by police in the city’s Duke Street, while others claimed there had been some disturbances in George Square after the match.

A spokesman for Police Scotland confirmed that three people had been arrested at Celtic Park, adding: “A further 14 people were arrested away from the ground in High Street for alleged disorder offences.

“Extra patrols were put in place due to the visiting fans.”

Police officers had warned of potential disorder in the lead-up to the match, which Celtic won 1-0 thanks to a Kris Commons goal.
