Police disperse Rangers supporters from Trongate in advance of the Celtic March.



Before a Celtic supporter march to Hampden before of the Scottish Cup final, police escorted a handful of Rangers supporters out of Glasgow’s Trongate.
Videos from the scene show supporters shortly after 10:00 on Saturday being escorted back into the city center while sporting blue T-shirts.
From around 12:00, Celtics supporters are expected to stroll from the city’s east end to the national stadium.

The gathering is moved on by a vehicle and foot cops, according to a video from the site.
A few hundred Rangers supporters with a heavy police escort later gathered at Glasgow Central Station just before 11:00.
As they moved through the concourse, the majority had their faces covered.

To get to Mount Florida, the special station for Rangers fans traveling to the game, they boarded trains.

According to Police Scotland, in an attempt to reduce disruptive behaviour, “appropriate” precautions had been implemented before to the match.
When over 25,000 Celtic supporters flocked to the Trongate to celebrate their Scottish Premiership title victory last weekend, four officers were hurt and nineteen people were taken into custody.
The neighborhood is home to several Celtic supporter pubs, and Glasgow City Council called the damage done to storefronts and street furniture “unacceptable.”

The local authority said football-related disorder in previous years had caused “significant” problems for the city.

In 2021, more than 50 people were arrested when Rangers fans celebrated the club’s league trophy win in George Sq way of tackling football-related disorder.
