After Jota scored the winner against Aberdeen on Sunday, a young Aberdeen fan was caught throwing a plastic bottle at the Celtic players. Nobody was hit and the game went on.
However, police have charged a 13-year-old with throwing the bottle onto the field and the youngster has been referred to
A Police Scotland spokesperson told Sky Sports: “A 13-year-old boy has been charged in connection with a Breach of the Peace after a plastic bottle was thrown towards the pitch at the Aberdeen v Celtic game on Sunday, 3 October.
“No one was injured and a report will be submitted to the Youth Justice Management Unit.”
Throwing things onto the pitch is unacceptable and we hope the young lad learns his lesson but we would hope there would be leniency in this instance.
We’re not clear if his parent was the one running down the steps towards the Celtic players after the goal – if it was, then shame on him for teaching his child that these antics are ok.
There was also a vape pen thrown from the stands but nobody was caught on camera doing it.
Celtic won the game 2-1 and consigned Aberdeen to another defeat under Stephen Glass. The new Dons boss is finding the going tough in the early stages of this season.
Scott Brown has been unable to help the club hit the heights they expect.
