Situated in the away end during Bayern’s 2-1 Champions League victory, the banner appeared to back the campaign, reading: “Repeal the O.B.A”

Celtic fans hung a similar banner criticising the legislation and politicians they felt responsible for its introduction at the recent 1-0 victory over Dundee last month.

Supporters group Fans Against Criminalisation have applauded the Bayern Munich supporters for seemingly standing in solidarity with their Scottish counterparts.

A message on Twitter read: “A massive thank you to the Bayern Munich supporters for their solidarity with fans in Scotland. This legislation embarrasses our country.”
