Celtic supporting bigots fined

Five men were fined and given football banning orders for religiously aggravated breach of the peace at the Celtic Park clash.

Three were in their teens, one was 21 and the fifth was 30. One of the teenagers convicted, Celtic fan Mark McMurray, 19, of Airdrie, got a two-year banning order and £300 fine for shouting and swearing inside the stadium.

McMurray claimed yesterday that the police had been "very heavy-handed".

He said he had only been singing a song called "Cheer Up Walter Smith"
