‘Absolute scumbags’: Social media reacts to glass being thrown onto pitch during Rangers vs Celtic
The second half of Rangers vs Celtic had to be delayed on Sunday after a fan had thrown broken glass into the box of Celtic goalkeeper, Joe Hart.
The away outfit are currently leading 2-1 at the Ibrox after goals from Tom Rogic and Cameron Carter-Vickers cancelled out Aaron Ramsey’s opener.

The first 45 was an entertaining affair and fans were no doubt eager to see the second half get underway.

However, the game was marred by the unsavoury actions of at least one idiot fan who threw glass onto the pitch where Joe Hart would be standing in the second half.

This has since prompted many on social media to condemn the behaviour, with just some of the tweets shown below:
Absolute scumbags throwing glass bottles on to the pitch. How low can some people go. This is how this game will be remembered now.

That is an absolutely disgraceful action to throw broken glass onto a football pitch. I had operations aged 10 due to glass on a football pitch, it is an abhorrent action to intentionally smash a bottle up and chuck it onto the field of play
