Celtic ban 128 supporters

Celtic ban 128 fans following recent crowd trouble against Motherwell.

Celtic have issued precautionary bans to 128 fans following recent crowd trouble against Motherwell.

Smoke bombs and flares were set off by supporters of the Scottish champions at Fir Park on Friday night, while chairs were also thrown from the away end.

The club have now suspended fans from attending both home and away games pending further investigation.

Meanwhile, around 250 season ticket holders have been relocated inside the part of the team's home ground Parkhead.

"Events such as those on Friday night do not represent the Celtic support or the club. These events were an embarrassment to our great football club and are absolutely indefensible," read an official Celtic statement.

"It is clear that there is an element which has no hesitation in bringing Celtic's name into disrepute. This is something the club will not tolerate and we therefore have no other option but to take this action. We will not allow the great name of Celtic to be damaged in this way any more - our supporters deserve more than this.

"While recent events are very regrettable, we would like to thank our many thousands of fans for the wonderful, positive backing which they continue to give to Celtic."

Celtic manager Neil Lennon criticised the supporters involved following the game, which his side won 5-0.
