A Celtic fan who caused trouble in Motherwell before a game at Fir Park has been fined £1,000 at Hamilton Sheriff Court.

However, Rogan Craik (21), of Perth, dodged a football banning order. He admitted brandishing an umbrella, shouting abuse and trying to start fights on December 6 last year.

The court heard of trouble as Celtic fans made their way through Brandon Parade and the Brandon Street underpass towards the stadium.

A previous trial was told of fighting between rival fans in Windmillhill Street

Celtic supporters caused thousands of pounds worth of damage to seats at Fir Park that night.
