Eighteen people have been arrested following the Scottish League Cup semi-final between Celtic and Rangers.

Police Scotland said all the arrests were made in and around Hampden.

A 27-year-old man was arrested in connection with an alleged sectarian breach of the peace and a 17-year-old man was arrested for allegedly being in possession of a pyrotechnic device.

A further 16 men, aged between 17 and 68 years, were arrested for minor public order offences.

The men are expected to appear at Glasgow Sheriff Court on Monday.
