Police Scotland is investigating incidents of disorder during Wednesday night's match between Ross County and Celtic.

Some Celtic fans ran onto the pitch following Anthony Ralston's 97th-minute goal which earned the visitors a 2-1 win in the Scottish Premiership game at Dingwall.

Police also confirmed a 32-year-old man had been arrested and charged and is due to appear in court at a later date.

A Police Scotland spokesperson said: "Police Scotland is liaising with Ross County Football Club following incidents of disorder during the club's match with Celtic on Wednesday, 16 December, 2021.

"One man aged 32 has been arrested and charged in connection and is due to appear at court at a later date.

"Enquiries are ongoing."

A club statement read: "We strongly condemn this type of discriminatory behaviour and language, which has no place in football or wider society.

"We are working to identify the individuals involved and will take the strongest possible action against them. An investigation is underway within the club and Police Scotland have been notified with a view to carrying out a criminal investigation.

"Any supporter who was present in that area of the ground and has information or recordings that can assist this investigation should contact the club."

How Celtic made it six straight wins

Liel Abada's fourth goal of the season put Ange Postecoglou's side ahead but Jack Baldwin's second-half equaliser looked to have secured a point for the hosts.

Celtic's chances of staging a recovery were made even harder when Carl Starfelt dragged back Regan Charles-Cook to receive a red card for a second bookable offence, but Ralston rose to meet Tom Rogic's cross with virtually the last touch of the game to spark wild scenes in the away end.

The result means second-placed Celtic remain four points behind Rangers, who beat St Johnstone 2-0 on Wednesday, while Ross County remain in 11th place on 14 points, off the foot of the table on goal difference.
