By Emmma Sanders
A number of arrests were made following Celtic’s 1-0 victory against Rangers in the Scottish League cup semi-final, according to a report.
The BBC News website Scotland Police made 18 arrests following the second Old Firm derby of the season at Hampden Park.
A 17 year-old was arrested for allegedly being in possession of a pyrotechnic device while a 27 year-old man was arrested for alleged breach of the peace.
A further 16 arrests, all made in the Hampden area, were males aged between 17 and 68, for minor public order offences.
All of the supporters arrested are due to appear at Glasgow Sheriff Court on Monday, just 24 hours after Celtic’s 1-0 victory.

The game itself was relatively tame and Brendan Rodgers’ side were far less convincing than they were during the last derby clash in September.
Celtic ran out as 5-1 winners in the humiliating defeat for Rangers at Celtic Park and Mark Warburton’s side were once again unable to get the better of their rivals.
The victory means Celtic will face Aberdeen in the Scottish league cup final in November but Rangers miss out as they continue to have a disappointing start to the campaign.
Rangers are currently seven points behind the league leaders in the Scottish Premier League.
