Police have arrested a ninth person following Saturday's Old Firm match at Ibrox.

A 28-year-old man was detained in connection with an alleged offence under the Offensive Behaviour at Football and Threatening Communications Act.

It comes after officers said that were aware of a racially motivated incident.

It is understood someone allegedly made a monkey gesture at Celtic player Scott Sinclair.

The 28-year-old man is expected to appear at Glasgow Sheriff Court on Tuesday.

Celtic won the game against Rangers 5-1.

On Saturday, police said eight people had been arrested in connection with alleged offences in and around the stadium.
