Teenagers reported for alleged disorder at Motherwell v Celtic game

FOURTEEN teenagers have been reported in connection with alleged disorder at the Motherwell v Celtic game.

Trouble broke out among the crowd during the match at Fir Park last month.

Three 14-year-olds, five 15-year-olds and six 16-year-olds, were reported to the procurator fiscal after a police operation in Lanarkshire.

Police said the males have also been referred to the Children's Reporter.

The police operation took place during the weekend and it is understood all 14 teenagers are from the Motherwell area.

A Police Scotland spokeswoman said: "Fourteen people are the subject of a report to the Procurator Fiscal and have been referred to the Children's Reporter in connection with alleged disorder following the Motherwell V Celtic match on Friday December 6 2013."

Ten other people were reported to the procurator fiscal in connection with alleged disorder last month.
