Celtic Fans in Spit Shame

RANGERS manager Paul Le Guen was confronted by rival fans after attending the Hearts v Celtic match at Tynecastle on Sunday, police have said.
The Frenchman was verbally abused by supporters as he left the ground after Hearts' 2-1 win.

Police said they received reports of an incident involving the coach, who joined the Glasgow club in the summer.

It was reported yesterday that the manager was spat at, had his windscreen obscured and was flashed at by a Celtic fan.

He was said to have been spotted by Celtic supporters, who had just seen their team lose 2-1, near a school on McLeod Street which is used as a car park on matchdays.

Le Guen, who was reportedly with his assistant Yves Colleau and other members of his staff, was understood to have then been verbally abused by a group of fans.

It was reported a newspaper was thrust across his windscreen as he tried to drive away after a fan spat at him.

A supporter was reported to have then exposed himself to the former Lyon coach.

A spokeswoman for Lothian and Borders Police confirmed that officers attended an incident at the stadium's car park after the game, and said Le Guen was subjected to "banter and backchat".

She added no complaint had been received and by the time officers arrived Le Guen had gone.

A spokeswoman for Rangers declined to comment, as did a spokesman for Celtic.

A spokeswoman for Hearts said the club had no precise details of the incident, and as it did not happen inside Tynecastle Stadium there are no plans to investigate.
