Police Scotland has thanked both clubs and supporters for staying at home around today's match and confirmed no arrests following the Old Firm fixture.
Assistant Chief Constable Bernard Higgins said: “I’d like to thank the vast majority of fans from both clubs who took responsibility to prevent the spread of coronavirus by staying at home and not gathering at Celtic Park or anywhere else.
“Where small groups of people did gather, officers engaged and encouraged them to disperse and return home.
“The clear message to all supporters as the football season continues over the coming weeks is to stay safe by staying at home and please do not gather in large groups.
“I’m grateful for the co-operation and support from all clubs and we will continue to work with them and the Scottish Government to ensure the season can be completed safely.”
