THE SCOTTISH PREMIER League have launched an investigation into pro-IRA chanting at Celtic Park.

Officials say that they were notified by match representatives after the 29 October game against Hibs.

The Bhoys are also currently under investigation by UEFA because of alleged inappropriate chanting in their Europa League game with Rennes recently.

SPL’s operations officer, Iain Blair told the Daily Record: “I am currently gathering information about what happened during the match when the arrests were made.

“We need to find out more about when it happened and what exactly went on. We also have to establish that Celtic, as I am sure they will have, co-operated fully with the police in the aftermath of this event.”
