Celtic v Rangers: Five injured after 'crush' at Old Firm game
September 2, 2018 4:08 pm
Five people have been injured trying to get into Sunday’s Old Firm game at Celtic Park.
One was taken to hospital after falling from a wall and others were treated at the scene before going into the match.
Celtic fans said some supporters were forced to climb over a high fence to escape a crush, which they claim was caused by the stadium entry points being changed.
Police and Celtic FC said they would be reviewing their procedures.
‘People were panicking’
One supporter, who did not wish to be named, told the BBC Scotland news website: "People couldn’t walk round the stadium anymore so there was a bottleneck under the north stand.
“Suddenly there was an absolute crush because there were about 1,000 people trying to get one way and about 1,000 trying to go the other way. The corridor is only six to seven people wide.”
