FIREWORKS were set off outside Celtic Park as the Hoops and Livingston observed a minute of silence for Prince Philip.
John Kennedy’s men face the Lions this afternoon as they return to the Premiership for the first time since the international break.

And together, all the other SPFL clubs, they fell silent before kick-off as a sign of respect for the Duke of Edinburgh.

The prince died at Windsor Castle yesterday morning at the age of 99.

However, as Celtic and Livingston players remained silent on the pitch, fireworks could be heard going off outside the stadium.

It is not known exactly where or who triggered them during the silence.

The sound of the fireworks was picked up both on the radio and on Celtic TV’s coverage of the match.

The cops revealed to SunSport that they investigate the incident.

A Scottish Police spokesperson said: ‘We are investigating the misuse of fireworks outside Celtic Park stadium on Saturday 10 April 2021. Investigations into the incident are ongoing. “

Meanwhile, interim Celtic boss John Kennedy admits he has not spoken to club chiefs about his concerns about FPSL inconsistencies in sanctions.

Nathan Patterson, Bongani Zungu, Calvin Bassey, Dapo Mebude and Brian Kinnear have been banned for six games after violating Covid-19 restrictions.

However, the Rangers have since appealed the verdicts and their case will not be heard until April 20.

This frees the players up for next week’s clash with Celtic.

Kennedy said: “I haven’t spoken to anyone at the club about it, I’ve been asked my opinion on it.

“Much of this has been directed towards the SFA protocols as to how they deal with these issues.

“I said what I had to say at the time.

“I was asked for my opinion, I gave it and from now on it’s up to them to take care of it and we’ll focus on our football.

“This is the situation of the Rangers and that of the SFA. We are simply asking the question in terms of consistency in these decisions. “
