Arlene Foster all smiles at Ibrox but Celtic crush Rangers

By Staff Reporters

DUP leader Arlene Foster took a break from promoting the Union in Scotland to watch an Old Firm match - only to see Rangers suffer their worst ever defeat to Celtic at Ibrox.

Celtic crushed the home team 5-1 in Glasgow, where Mrs Foster had earlier unveiled a strategy to tackle head-on the threats to the future of the Union.

Among those the former first minister met were injured Rangers captain Lee Wallace and club legend Mark Hately. Mrs Foster also met Celtic representatives, but tweeted: "It's a pity I missed NI's Brendan Rodgers #OldFirm".

The game was marred by an incident of racial abuse where someone allegedly made a monkey gesture at Celtic player Scott Sinclair. Eight people were arrested following the match including a 23-year-old man for allegedly running on to the pitch to confront Celtic captain Scott Brown.
