An error by Langfield handed Celtic a 1-0 victory on Saturday.

However the goalkeeper was then abused on the social networking site about a brain seizure he had last year.

Teammates have offered their support and Grampian Police said they were making inquiries into a complaint about Twitter comments.

The force is following a "positive line of inquiry".
