The Daily Mail sent out an erroneous and misleading headline on Boxing Day claiming Celtic fans had clashed with the police as they supported the team from outside St Johnstone’s ground.
Fans have been locked out of football grounds in large numbers for at least the next three weeks but some Celtic fans still went to the effort of going to the stadium and peacefully supporting the Hoops.
The Police were present but they never had to be anything other than bystanders while the game went in behind them.
The Daily Mail reported ‘clashes’ with the Police outside the ground and ran with the angle it’s the fault of those putting in restrictions for this happening.
This wasn’t the case and Celtic themselves came out this morning with Supporter Liaison Officer John Paul setting the record straight.
So, there was absolutely nothing in this. There was no story here other than Celtic fans going above and beyond to support their side.
The mainstream media doing their best again to push their own narrative.
