According to the Daily Mail, Lazio fans are planning to attack Parkhead supporters after anti-fascist banners were displayed during last week's 2-1 Celtic victory.

This followed Lazio fans being pictured giving Nazi salutes in the centre of Glasgow.

Both clubs and Uefa are keen to avoid any potential trouble around the tie on October 7.

The Scottish Sun also reported that Celtic fans will be joined by Police Scotland officers in Italy.
