'Absolute Stupidity!': Old Firm Match Disrupted After Glass Bottle Thrown Onto The Pitch At Ibrox
| Last updated
There were shameful scenes in Sunday’s Old Firm match between Rangers and Celtic after a glass bottle was thrown onto the pitch at Ibrox during the half-time interval.
The second half was delayed for a number of minutes after broken glass was spotted in Celtic goalkeeper Joe Hart’s penalty area.
Dozens of stewards were required to clear the broken glass, which appeared to have been thrown onto the pitch from the Rangers end.
Former Rangers forward Ally McCoist, who was on co-commentary duties for Sky Sports, said: "I thought nothing could surprise me anymore, but honestly. Deary me. Absolute stupidity."
His fellow co-commentator, Andy Walker, added: "That is absolutely outrageous.

"To see broken bottles on the field of play that can affect the players, the referee, anyone that it’s aimed at. Absolutely outrageous."
Walker later added: "Shameful scenes, shameful that anyone would choose to throw anything on the pitch, never mind a broken bottle."

How dumb do you have to be to throw a broken glass bottle onto a football pitch.— Wayne 😷🇹🇹🏴 (@WaynesWorld20_) April 3, 2022
Celtic were leading 2-1 at the time after coming from behind in an action-packed first half at Ibrox.
Aaron Ramsey had put Rangers ahead just three minutes before goals from Tom Rogic and Cameron Carter-Vickers turned the match on its head.
Celtic would go on to win the match 2-1, to extend their lead over Rangers at the top of the Scottish Premiership to six points with six games remaining in the season.
