SEVEN men were arrested during last night’s match between Hearts and Celtic at Tynecastle.

A number of them, whose ages range from 20 to 44, were due to appear at Edinburgh Sheriff Court today.

However, Lothian and Borders Police say more arrests could follow in the coming days as officers go over CCTV footage taken at last night’s clash.

Match commander Superintendant David Carradice said: “Our priority is everybody’s safety and we will take action against the small number whose disruptive behaviour spoils the match for the decent fans.

“It is important to remember there was CCTV and video recording equipment within the ground.

“Working with our colleagues in the FOCUS unit, this will enable police to take action in the coming days to trace those responsible for unacceptable behaviour.

Hearts lost 4-0 to Celtic at Tynecastle last night as the Glasgow side extended their lead at the top of the SPL.
