Tel Aviv fan attacked after Celtic match

A 53-year-old man has been arrested after an incident involving Hapoel Tel Aviv fans in a Glasgow pub.

The man was held after allegedly brandishing an offensive weapon in a pub in Sauchiehall Street before Wednesday’s Europa League game against Celtic.

A police spokeswoman said: “A 53-year-old man has been detained by police in relation to brandishing an offensive weapon during a disagreement between two groups of males.

“There are no reports of any person being injured.”

Celtic won the game 2-0 but Tel Aviv progress to the next round thanks to Hamburg’s victory over Vienna.
