Five people have been arrested in connection with crowd trouble at Friday night's Motherwell v Celtic game.

A reported £10,000 of damage was caused to seats in a section of Fir Park stadium housing Celtic fans.

Police said 18 smoke bombs, one flare and three fireworks were set off. There were also disturbances and vandalism in Motherwell before and after the game.

Celtic suspended 128 fans from their games and relocated 250 season-ticket holders over the trouble.

The club said it was "appalled" by the disorder and issued precautionary suspensions preventing fans from attending home and away matches.

The 250 season-ticket holders being relocated are seated in the Green Brigade's corner of Celtic Park.

The match at Fir Park ended in a 5-0 win for Celtic.
