Police Scotland arrested 28 people after thousands of Rangers fans gathered in Glasgow on Sunday to celebrate winning the Scottish Premiership.

A further seven people were issued with fixed penalty notices or will be reported to the Procurator Fiscal.

Fans packed into George Square and gathered outside Ibrox Stadium after Rangers took their first top-flight title in 10 years.

The force said action was taken for offences including assaulting police officers, breaching coronavirus regulations, disorder, use of flares and sectarian breaches of the peace.
