Cops cancel bus parade but treble treble party continues
Celtic’s open top bus procession through the streets of Glasgow to celebrate the club’s historic treble treble victory was cancelled by Police Scotland due to safety fears, but that failed to dampen the celebrations of the Celtic supporters.
Thousands of Celtic fans who had flocked to the Saltmarket and Gallowgate areas of the city had been anticipating cheering on their victorious heroes - but thanks to inadequate policing, a lack of organisation and underestimating the sheer number of fans that would attend the event - Police Scotland forced the bus to reroute and eventually cancel the parade an hour later.
In the aftermath of the parade being cancelled, a club spokesperson posted on twitter, saying: “Due to safety concerns, the bus parade, on the advice of @policescotland, had to be rerouted. There were numerous supporters on the road and the safety of our fans will always be our priority.
“While this is unfortunate, it is outwith our control and we hope to have another event in the near future to celebrate today’s momentous occasion.”
Despite the parade being cancelled, Celtic fans celebrated none the less and showed why Glasgow is Green and White.
